The Swiss Grand Award for Theatre / Hans Reinhart Ring 2020 goes to the director Jossi Wieler, who was born in Kreuzlingen and lives in Berlin. He is one of the most renowned opera and theatre directors internationally.
This year’s Schweizer Kleinkunstpreis has been won by the duo Les Diptik. Also nominated were Simon Chen and Karim Slama. Since the award gala and Swiss artists’ fair were cancelled owing to the corona pandemic, the award will be handed over along with all the other Theatre Awards at a small-scale event in November.
As announced in the Culture Dispatch 2021–2024, from 2021 the Theatre Awards, including the Kleinkunstpreis, will be merged with the Dance Awards and presented annually under the umbrella of the Swiss Performing Arts Awards in autumn.
As part of the realignment to create the Swiss Performing Arts Awards, the June Johnson Newcomer Prize and the Cultural Heritage call for submissions will be expanded to include the performing arts. Entries for the 2021 awards can be submitted between 6 October and 3 November 2020 on the FOC support platform.
