On May 17, 2023, the Fonds Darstellende Künste awarded the Tabori Prize, Germany's highest honor for the independent performing arts, for the 14th time.
Even before the show, Lara-Sophie Milagro and Jeanne Charlotte Vogt reported live from the Tabori Hybrid Studio for the online audience and interviewed this year's as well as former award winners, members of the jury and other guests of the award ceremony.
The award ceremony was opened by the speeches of Helge Lindh (Member of the German Parliament, cultural policy spokesman of the SPD) and the chairman of the Fonds Prof. Dr. Wolfgang Schneider. The artistic highlights of the program were provided by the Tabori Award and last year's award winners Overhead Projekt and Meine Damen und Herren. Before the awards and the Tabori Prize were finally presented by the jurors Marta Keil, Matthias Lilienthal, Anna Wagner and Prof. Dr. Hans-Joachim Wagner.
The singer FAYIM led through the evening.
After the award ceremony, the company Soydivision invited to a dinner performance followed by an after-show party at CAN.
The Studio für unendliche Möglichkeiten was asked to develop the concept of the Tabori Prize 2023: with a hybrid studio and a bidirectional stream, the accessibility of the award ceremony could be improved and an infrastructural appreciation could be given to the non-attending audience. Before the actual award ceremony, experts from the arts and cultural politics were interviewed in the hybrid studio and streamed to the online audience. On stage, numerous people from the independent performing arts who were not able to attend could then be inserted live, thus clearly emphasizing that this was not exclusively an event for those physically present.
