ACTRESS TATYANA LOLOVA IS THE WINNER OF THE IKAR 2021 AWARD FOR LIFETIME CONTRIBUTION TO THE THEATER

 

The Board of Directors of the Union of Artists voted for the award of one of the most beloved Bulgarian actresses in early February. The award was to be announced along with the nominations in all categories on Saturday, March 27, at 10 a.m., during the official press conference. Due to the tragic news the honorary award will be presented posthumously.

Traditionally, the prestigious awards in the field of performing arts have been awarded since 1974 on Theater Day, but for the second year the awards ceremony will be postponed and it will not take place on March 27 due to the pandemic.

All nominated performances will be programmed within the 17th edition of the Sofia Theater Hall, which is part of the Calendar of Cultural Events of the Sofia Municipality for 2021, as well as the National Cultural Calendar.

The official award ceremony is scheduled for May 11, 2021 and will be traditionally held at the Ivan Vazov National Theater. Like every year, this ceremony will be broadcast by the Bulgarian National Television.

This year, according to the anti-epidemic measures, the press conference at which this year’s nominees were  announced was broadcast via online streaming on the Facebook page of the IKAR Awards: https://www.facebook.com/icarusawards
