The best dramaturgy is awarded at FIBA.
Created in 1999, the Germán Rozenmacher Award for New Playwriting is organized by the Centro Cultural Rector Ricardo Rojas of the Universidad de Buenos Aires and by FIBA, under the authority of the Buenos Aires City’s Ministry of Culture. It takes the name of Germán Rozenmacher (Buenos Aires, 1936 - Mar del Plata, 1971) in homage to the memory of the great playwright and short-story writer, author of Réquiem para un viernes a la noche and Cabecita negra. Previously, it was offered and awarded every two years, in each new edition of FIBA, and now it is done every year as the Festival has become an annual event. Its aim is to stimulate the production of authors born or based in Argentina who are under 36 years of age. The award will be presented by FIBA’s Artistic Director Federico Irazábal, UBA’s General Coordinator of Culture Cecilia Vázquez and jury members Laura Sbdar, Martín Marcou and Mariana Chaud. Both 1st and 2nd Prize winning plays will be published by Los Libros del Rojas in a quadrilingual edition, with translation into English, French and Portuguese to encourage their reading and staging in other contexts. Moreover, the winning play will be automatically included in the programme of the following FIBA as part of a co-production between C.C. Rojas and FIBA.
