Leipzig Movement Art Prize
The Leipzig Movement Art Prize is a theater prize for the independent theater scene in Leipzig . The prize has been awarded annually in Leipzig since 2005 and is endowed with 5,000 euros. It is supported by the Leipzig Movement Art Association. V., which has set itself the task of promoting the independent scene in the field of performing arts in Leipzig. The focus is on supporting the award winner's future productions. The idea of the award arose independently of public funding as a signal from private sponsors (Leipziger Werbblatt Verlag) to theater professionals, politics and the public. The idea and conception of the award was realized in 2004 by the Leipzig cultural manager Ronald Schubert, who is also the chairman of the association - together with the former publishing director Helga Pappelbaum. The Mayor of Leipzig, Burkhard Jung, has been the patron of the award since 2011 .
Since 2013 the five nominated productions have been presented in a festival, at the end of which the award ceremony takes place. For the first time in 2014 there was a special jury prize for an extraordinary talent, it went to Anne Rab.
The jury for the Leipzig Movement Art Prize is made up of five Leipzig culture experts who are active in various areas of public life.
