On the 20th of March 2017 ATINA will celebrate the TYA World Day with the 11th ATINA Awards Ceremony.
ATINA gives this Award with the aim of highlighting the work of artists and companies devoted to TYA. The Jury is integrated by independent and qualified journalists and researchers.
ATINA Award is given to those Argentinian professionals and Companies who have established new trends during the year and their work can be considered a parameter for the rest of us.
We need frameworks and orientation within this field that many artists choose as their first experience in the art of theatre. We need more and more qualified professionals to face this specialty in modern times. We need professionals who know well and can understand their audience. We need brave, sharp and committed playwriting, which reflects the experience of the audience and interests them. We need experimentation and research of new procedures from the Directors. We need actors who can play with intensity and who can be creative at the moment of making contact with the audience. We need to redefine the scenic space based on each proposal and on the communication with the spectator. It is essential to pay attention to the production details. And especially, a theatre for adolescents that can move, capture, identify and modify them is necessary.
ATINA Awards tries to emphasize these aspects by awarding the more outstanding works in the year, having for certain that this is also a way to encourage and improve TYA in our country.”
In this way we join our colleagues all over the world, celebrating the TYA World Day and invite everybody to take a look at the awarded works in our website www.atina.org.ar
