The 2008 ASSITEJ Award for Artistic Excellence
On the occasion of the 16th Congress held in Adelaide, ASSITEJ International awarded La Baracca – Testoni Ragazzi with its “Award for artistic excellence 2008” for the project “0-3 years. Theatre for the very young”, giving the following reasons:
“… for the creative and innovative work for the youngest. La Baracca is the “nest” of the new art for the newest generations, who are today so important to us.
All candidates carry out an outstanding work in their own countries, but La Baracca operates at an international level.
For years, this company has been a leader in the evolution of the whole industry of theatre for the very young, they cooperate with other operators throughout Europe and organised the fi rst festival of theatre for early years”.
