Green Room Awards are back, but doing things a little differently. Instead of gathering in a theatre for our traditional awards ceremony, this year the Green Room Awards invite you into our Virtual Theatre for an online premiere of 2021. Art Doco on Monday 28 June at 7pm AEST.
2021. Art Doco is co-created by Takeshi Kondo of Man of the Tree, and Green Room Awards Association Co-Presidents Sapidah Kian and Eugyeene Teh. It is presided over by the Art Oracle, Erica McCalman.
“An Art Doco?”, you say. “But why?”
For the past 38 years, the primary output of the Green Room Awards Association has been to present an awards ceremony celebrating the best in Victorian performing arts. However, last year was one of challenge, change and adaptation. The sector navigated the slings and arrows of COVID, closing venues, going into lockdown and watching the industry come to a grinding halt. In short, we’ve changed, and we want to celebrate the Victorian performing arts sector while acknowledging the seismic shifts that occurred in 2020.
Each Green Room panel has deliberated over how to best represent their part of the industry, so for 2021 you’ll notice that our nominations and awards may look different. Nominations, acknowledgments and some awards will be announced via Green Room Awards social media channels in the coming weeks.
We hope you’ll join us online at 7pm on Monday 28 June to reflect on what has been, and look forward to what is coming. Details on how to watch 2021. Art Doco will be released soon.
