New Diorama Theatre and NDT Resident Ensemble PIT have won the 2013 Les Enfants Terribles Prize for their upcoming Edinburgh show, Kubrick³.
Written and Directed by David Byrne, Kubrick³ is created by PIT and NDT, co-produced by Greenwich Theatre and Flavia Fraser-Cannon, and will premiere at Pleasance, Edinburgh in August of this year.
