Fonds Darstellende Künste


German / 

On 21 May 2021, the Fonds Darstellende Künste will award the Tabori Prize, the highest award for the independent performing arts in Germany, for the 12th time, once again in an online award ceremony. The prize jury selects the winners from all the groups and artists who have received funding from the Fonds Darstellende Künste in the past five years.

After last year's unboxing awards ceremony, this year's winners and recipients will again be honoured in a very special way.

Gob Squad, last year's award winners, will host this year's ceremony. There will also be a special live moment after the ceremony: The digital aftershow party! Congratulate the award winners and meet colleagues and friends in the virtually recreated HAU1 with a drink in the foyer or a chat in the auditorium.

You will find all information about access on 21 May 2021 on the website of the Performing Arts Fund at Registration is not necessary.



With the Tabori Prize, the jury of experts of the Fonds Darstellende Künste honours a continuous artistic work with a high national and international impact, which was and is also relevant in terms of content and pioneering in terms of format or aesthetic style. The prize is endowed with 20,000€. In addition to the Tabori Prize, the jury also awards two prizes of 10,000€ each. With these awards, the jury honours experimental formats by artists and groups who have made a convincing impression with a significant upcoming or continuous development of an independent aesthetic format.
