We’re thrilled to announce that Théâtre la Seizième Artistic and Managing Director (as well as our MFA Directing alumnus) Craig Holzschuh has won the Marcus-Banque Nationale Prize. This prestigious award is the French Canadian version of the Siminovitch Prize.
Given every two years, the Prix Marcus-Banque Nationale highlights the work of exemplary French Canadians artists whose work has made a major, durable impact on both the regional and national levels. The prize is accompanied by a cash award of $15,000. In order to promote relationships, the development of the theatrical milieu, and the transmission of theatrical knowledge, the winners of the 2013 edition of the Prix Marcus-Banque Nationale were asked to choose a protégé they will mentor during the following year. Holzschuh has chosen two artists from Vancouver, Émilie Leclerc and Gilles Poulin-Denis, to contribute to the artistic directorship of the company over the course of the 2013-2014 season.
