Last night The ASSITEJ International Award for Artisitic Excellence was awarded. Nominees included the United States’s very own Barry Kornhauser. TYA USA President Lenora Brown received his certificate of nomination on his behalf. And the winner is…. Theatre La Baracca (Roberto and Valeria Frabetti) from Italy. La Baracca is known as a pioneer in the “baby theatre” field. For over twenty years they specialized in performances for the under 4 set.

Valeria Frabetti toasts the crowd and thanks them for their award.
