The Theatre Award
Every Year Performing Arts Platform presents two awards to the local performing arts community. The award ceremony usually takes place as part of our annual New Year’s Reception in January.
About the awards
Aarhus Audience Award
The jury selects and nominates three performances for the Audience Award. The nominees are put up for public voting via the local newspaper, Aarhus Stiftstidende. It is then up to the readers/audience to decide which performance will be this year’s winner of the Audience Award.
