The Arches Brick Award is just one of the Arches’ many awards which help make us the leading provider in Scotland for support to emergent artists, selecting two emergent performance companies or artists from the Edinburgh Fringe and providing them with an opportunity to restage their piece at the Arches early the following year.
We are delighted to announce that this year’s winners are Cristian Ceresoli/Silvia Gallerano’s The Shit/La Merda and Lucy Ellinson’s Torycore. The former an hour-long monologue performed solo by a naked Italian female, and the latter a metal/noise gig performed for a small crowd in someone’s front room, the shows are united by a simmering political anger, expressed in two different ways. Both will be re-staged at the Arches in Spring 2013: keep an eye on the Arches website for details.
A huge congratulations to all the artists involved!
