The Children and Youth Theatre Award 2013 goes to Alexander and Påfågeln (Alexander and the Peacock), in which Marika Hedemyr is choreographer.
Masthuggsteatern has been awarded the Swedish Theatre Critics Association's Children's and youth theater price in 2013!
Marika Hedemyr is choreographer in the production.
The jury said:
The award goes to MASTHUGGSTEATERN in Gothenburg, for the staging of Alexander and Peacock, a novel by Lygia Bojunga. With unshakable faith in theater's storytelling ability and rich, collective imagination in the form, they intertwine the adventure of life's different conditions together. The ensemble exposes cleverly the play's theme of oppression of body and mind and challenges the fear that young audiences would have limited ability to receive a full size performance rich in perspectives.
