Congratulations to NYU Tisch Design for Stage and Film alum Zoe Hurwitz '19 for winning the 2019 Linbury Prize!
This biennial Prize, the most important of its kind in the UK, brings together the best of emerging designers with professional theatre, dance and opera companies. The four winners of each competition receive a cash prize together with a professional commission to design a production for a major company. Companies that have collaborated with the Prize in recent years include Birmingham Opera, Headlong, National Theatre of Scotland, Lyric Hammersmith and Scottish Dance Theatre. The Linbury Prize for Stage Design is funded entirely by the Linbury Trust, a charitable trust founded in 1973 by Lord Sainsbury of Preston Candover KG (John Sainsbury), and his wife Anya, Lady Sainsbury, CBE, the former ballerina Anya Linden. The name 'Linbury' is thus derived from the names Linden and Sainsbury. - The Linbury Prize
