Tim Robbins and the Actors Gang were awarded the "Prize of Hope" given to them jointly by The Dell'Arte Theatre in Blue Lake, California, and Denmark's Institute of Popular Theater.

From the Eureka Reporter's article (6.20.08 - http://www.eurekareporter.com/article...

"Nestled in Blue Lake is an award-winning physical theater school, and this weekend, it will award the Prize of Hope to Academy Award-winning actor Tim Robbins and his ensemble group The Actor's Gang.

Michael Fields, artistic director of Dell'Arte, said, "It's an international prize that was established by the Institute of Popular Theater in Denmark."

Dell'Arte received the prize in 2005, and it was subsequently asked to award it to a group in the United States. Dell'Arte was the first American group to receive this award and is the first American group to present it.

According to the Institute for Popular Theater, the award is for "people who fight for human hope in a daring, loving, vulgar, sincere, serious and poetic manner."

Fields and the ensemble at Dell'Arte felt The Actor's Gang embodied the characteristics of the award.

While Tim Robbins and many of the members of The Actor's Gang work in big Hollywood productions, the ideals of the ensemble are in keeping with those of small theater groups like those of Dell'Arte. "
