THIS IS A COSTUME DRAMA wins a Dora Award. For Outstanding Ensemble
In a statement posted on social media following the awards Artistic Director DA Hoskins expressed:
I feel I need to speak holistically about this and yet I am at that place where I am trying to figure out what is left in the bag for this guy. On Monday the ensemble of This Is a Costume Drama was acknowledged with a Dora Award. Not really into this idea of awards I have to say it did manage to put a smile on my face. To me this ensemble award speaks so potently of the philosophy of thedietrichgroup. To gauge consistent growth and survival in my work I created TDG as a platform to broaden and exercise ‘the artist(s) in exchange’. i am so proud of the communities we have created over the years and the integrity of the voices within them …and grateful for the support that has profoundly encouraged this.
This is the ensemble.
As fleeting as work comes and goes, this is what stays with me.
absofuckinglutely this really is a costume drama.
congratulations and thank you to so many of you out there.
