Total Theatre is delighted to announce the winners of the Total Theatre Awards 2013. Over the course of this year’s Edinburgh Festival Fringe we have assessed 360+ shows from which a shortlist of 32 nominated shows was announced on 16 August 2013.
Following this the nominated shows were viewed by a panel of judges who have awarded six Awards across three categories – one Award for an Emerging Company, two Awards for Visual/Physical Theatre and three Awards in Innovation, Experimentation and Playing With Form. The judges also considered a number of late opening shows, however due to the quantity of eligible shows it was not possible to apply Total Theatre’s rigorous assessment and judging process in full and thus no discretionary judges award has been awarded this year. One Significant Contribution award has also been awarded.
The Award Winners are:

Sh!t Theatre’s JSA (Job Seekers Anonymous) 2013 (England)
Sh!t Theatre / Escalator East to Edinburgh (Gryphon Venues at the Point Hotel)
