THE THEATER ROLLS OUT THE RED CARPET WITH THE XXII MAX AWARDS
On May 20th, the XXII Max Awards ceremony took place at the Calderón Theater in Valladolid. This gala, produced by the SGAE Foundation and which had the technical direction of Ricardo Carazo and Julio Cejalvo, recognizes last season’s best shows and theatrical performers with a total of 22 categories focused on the different areas of this artistic discipline.
Prior to the meeting, many artists and characters from the performance sector paraded through the red carpet of the event, which was hosted by Fernando Cayo, the actor, and directed by the theater director, Ana Zamora. The setting for the awards ceremony included a set that simulated a Castilian wheat field together with a varied visual ambience thanks to the use of different projections.
The ceremony was broadcast on television and highlighted by having very distributed prizes without any of the awarded projects clearly distinguished from the others in quality. The category of best theatrical show was awarded to the La Ternura play, and the veteran Concha Velasco was recognized with the Honor Award for her entire career. In addition, in the technical section, the outstanding illuminator Juanjo Llorens took his third Max Award for his endeavour in El curioso incidente de un perro a medianoche (The Curious Incident of a Dog at Midnight).
Fluge Audiovisuales provided the audiovisual equipment for the gala (with a Panasonic projector in the video section) thanks to the entrustment by the SGAE Foundation, producer of the event.
