The Stage / Giverny Masso


Critic Lyn Gardner and performer Selina Thompson are among the winners of this year’s Total Theatre Awards at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.

Thompson won an award for innovation, experimentation and playing with form for her show Salt, about her experiences retracing one of the routes of the transatlantic ‘Slave Triangle’, which is showing at Summerhall.

Two other Summerhall shows also won in the innovation, experimentation and playing with form category, including Palmyra by Bertrand Lesca and Nasi Voutsas, as well as Our Carnal Hearts by Rachel Mars.

The winners were announced in a ceremony on August 24 at the Out of the Blue Drill Hall in Edinburgh, hosted by performance collective Figs in Wigs.
