Herald Angel Award for Mirenka Cechova

After Spitfire Company & Damúza Theater, another Herald Angel Award goes to Mirenka Cechova and Tantehorse for their unique performance S/He Is Nancy Joe exploring transgender, difference and the desire for happiness and freedom. We are thrilled, especially as one of the other 4 winners was Patti Smith, putting the Czech Dance Showcase in very good company!

The Herald Angels have been awarded since 1996 across all festivals taking place in Edinburgh during August. The Herald critics choose the best from Edinburgh International Festival, The Jazz & Blues Festival, The Edinburgh International Book Festival and Edinburgh Festival Fringe. Herald Angles are awarded four times during the festival. Czech artists managed to succeed in the competition of 24000 performers who come to Scotland from all over the world.
