Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize 2013: The prize winners

Outstandig: "Africa" by Luis Biasotto.

Today on the occasion of the Zürcher Theater Spektakel 2013, the Zürcher Kantonalbank Patronage Prize and the Zücher Kantonalbank Acknowledgment Prize were awarded by Corine Mauch, Mayor of Zurich, and Dr. Jànos Blum, presidium member of the Zürcher Kantonalbank. Following intensive discussions, the jury reached a unanimous decision: The Zürcher Kantonalbank  Patronage Prize of 30 000 Swiss Francs goes to the Argentinian actor, dancer, performer, director and choreographer Luis Biasotto for his «Dadaistic» production «Africa», a revue defying all theatrical conventions and challenging the audience in an intelligent and comical way «to ponder on alleged certainties».
The Zürcher Kantonalbank Acknowledgment Prize of 5000 Swiss Francs goes to the Philippine performer and dancer Eisa Jocson for her solo «Macho Dancer», a work  with «rigorous concept and excellent execution», in which she investigates the «boundaries between legitimized live performance and seduction as popular and public entertainment».
