Schiller Award for Simon Rattle and Royston Maldoom
art used for improving the characters of young people
Mannheim (ddp). The Schiller Prize of the City of Mannheim has ben awarded to the conductor Sir Simon Rattle and the choreographer Royston Maldoon on account of the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra's notable educational project 'Le Sacré du printemps'. The protagonists are to be honoured on the 9th of May 2005, the second centenary of Schiller's death, as the city announced on Monday. It justified the allocation of the prize by saying that Rattle and Maldoom had managed in an exemplary manner to use art for improving the characters of young people.
The dance-drama project 'Le Sacré du printemps' was staged by Sir Simon Rattle together with the choreographer Maldoom and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra within the framework of the educational project which Sir Simon Rattle himself had launched. With young Berliners from various social classes and mainly without any prior training, they worked out a choreography to Stravinsky's ballet, which they then presented to a thrilled public. The exciting process of preparation, from the rehearsals to the premiere, is recorded in the film 'Rhythm is it!', which is being shown in cinemas throughout Germany.
The Schiller Prize of the City of Mannheim is awarded once in four years to outstanding personalities from the arts and society. Award-winners have included Frank Castorf, Friedrich Dürenmatt, Golo Mann, Peter Handke and Alfred Grosser. The first Schiller Prize was awarded in 1954 to Mary Wigman.
