The public has voted again and this year has recognized Tots eren fills meus as best theatrical production. The Arthur Miller classic directed by David Selvas has collected four more awards, at the gala that was held tonight in Premià de Mar, the town of Maresme where they were born in 1995, with the assistance of the Minister of Culture, Natàlia Garrigue.
The performances of the leading couple in this American drama are those that were recognized as best actress, Emma Vilarasau, and best actor, Jordi Bosch. In addition, Quim Ávila received the award for supporting actor, and Alejandro Andújar, the award for set design, for this bucolic garden where the drama unfolds.
The direction, however, was won by Clara Segura for La trena, the theatrical adaptation by Cristina Genebat and Marta Marco of Laetitia Colombani's novel of the same name.
In the field of musicals, L'alegria que passa was also recognized with five awards, starting with best musical. The adaptation of Santiago Rusiñol's piece by Dagoll Dagom has been a success and represents a good end to the career of this historic company, which will say goodbye to the stage with the umpteenth revival of Mar i cel. Andreu Gallén won the award for musical composition; Jordi Ballvé, from the sound space, and Àngels Gonyalons and Eloi Gómez were recognized with the awards for best actress and best actor in a musical.
Now, perhaps instead of five awards we should talk about four and a half, because Eloi Gómez's award was not ex aequo with another performer, but for the two musicals he has performed: L'alegria que passa and Golfus de Roma. This production, directed by Daniel Anglès, although it started with more nominations, won the shared award for best actor in a musical, best costume (Montse Amenós) and best characterization (Núria Llunell).
In dance, Maria Rovira's Odissea, with music by Eduard Iniesta, took home three of the four awards allocated to this category: best show, best choreography and best female dance performance (Ariadna Jordan). The best dance performer went to Àngel Duran, for Cowards.
Among the small format shows, the surprise was Dirrrty boys, which collected four awards: best show (Las Bestias), text (Gerard Guix), best new actor (Martí Cordero) and lighting design (Paula Costas).
Amèrica by Sergi Pompermayer, directed by Julio Manrique, was recognized with the Butaca for supporting actress (Mireia Aixalà) and revelation (Tamara N'Dong). Momo, by Anna Roca, won as a family show.
Los Butaca also has an honorary award, the Anna Lizaran Honorary Chair 2023, which recognizes "the trajectory of 30 years focused on a cause of solidarity worldwide" of Clowns Without Borders. Tortell Poltrona received the deserved award.
