Theaterfestival Boulevard wins Theatre Critics’ Award 2020

The members of the KNT, the Kring van Nederlandse Theatercritici (Dutch Circle of Theatre Critics) have announced the winner of this year’s award: Theaterfestival Boulevard in Den Bosch.

With the award, the critics honour the value of the festival and in particular this year’s edition that was live instead of online, offering an adapted, Covid-19-proof programme. According to the KNT, it was an inspiring and creative edition. The members appreciate the festival, led by Viktorien Hulst, for the way it combines its regional roots with a national impact and mentioned Van Hulst’s efforts in putting festivals on the map nationally.

Every year the KNT presents its award to an artist, organization or an initiative that has made an important contribution to the field. The award, a bronze sculpture by Michiel Johannes Jansen, will be released at a later date.
