Rebus would like to extend our deepest thanks to the Canberra Critics Circle for honouring our work throughout 2021 with an award on Tuesday at the 31st Annual ACT Arts Awards.
The 30 year-old Canberra Critics’ Circle is the only such group of critics in Australia that runs across all the major art forms, not just performing arts, and has always resisted making awards in “best-of” categories, preferring only to differentiate between major art form genres in their award categories. The circle changes each year depending on who is writing or broadcasting on the arts in Canberra.
Our award read:
To a boldly original theatre company, whose instigators have been at the forefront of a forum-style theatre that steps into the issues of the present-day world, seen in The Beauty Thief at Belconnen Community Theatre during March and What If Scientists Ruled The World? in the Australian Academy of Science’s Shine Dome during May.
It was truly an honour to receive such an award alongside the top Canberra artists across a range of art forms.
