Milo Rau was awarded with the 3sat-award after the first performance of Five Easy Pieces at the Berlin Theatertreffen. The jury praises Rau for his trend-setting and artistic-innovative work.

The jury's report states: "Rau makes the monstrous not bearable, but he makes it legible, and he asks fundamental questions about violence between minors and adults, thus celebrating in Five Easy Pieces what the Dutrouxs of this world aim to destroy: children's wisdom, willpower, and pride. "
