Livestreaming an Event: The Kenneth Tynan Award 2021
A Ceremony Celebrating the Twentieth Anniversary of the Dramaturgs’ Network and the Work of All the Shortlisted Nominees
Dramaturgs' Network presents the Kenneth Tynan Award 2021 livestreaming on the global, commons-based, peer-produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Saturday 20 November 2021 at 2:30 p.m. EDT (New York, UTC -5) / 7:30 p.m. GMT (London, UTC +0).
In honor of Kenneth Tynan, the United Kingdom’s first serving dramaturg, working at the National Theatre, to recognize excellence in the field of dramaturgy, the Dramaturgs’ Network presents the Kenneth Tynan Award (KTA) 2021. Established in 2011, this biennial award honors theatre professionals, who have made an outstanding contribution to dramaturgy in the United Kingdom in the past two years, regardless of their job title.
In a ceremony celebrating the twentieth anniversary of the Dramaturgs’ Network and the work of all the shortlisted nominees, the session will feature a conversation on dramaturgy with the shortlisted dramaturgs—and, following the announcement, the winner of the Kenneth Tynan Award 2021 will deliver their dramaturgy paper, an inspirational speech on dramaturgy.
This year's KTA judging panel members are Oladipo Agboluaje, Hannah Khalil, Stewart Pringle, Sarah Sigal, Hanna Slättne, and Katalin Trencsényi.
This is a free event (suggested voluntary donation: £4).
The Kenneth Tynan Award is generously supported by the National Theatre, Nick Hern Books and Tom Stoppard.
The KTA ceremony forms the culmination of a day-long event celebrating the Dramaturgs’ Network’s twentieth anniversary, and will be preceded by a panel discussion on anti-racist strategies in dramaturgy.
