Citation, 2008 New York Dance and Performance Award (Bessie) for Frӓulein Maria
For creating a tender, rollicking excursion at Joe’s Pub called "Fräulein Maria", which took us from the snow-capped peaks of Hollywood through the worlds of “downtown” dance, Martha Graham, Willi Ninja, Balanchine, Hip-Hop, Voguing, Stepping, stomping, whirling, and flying like wild geese with the moon on their wings.
Citation, 1997 New York Dance and Performance Award (Bessie) for Sustained Achievement
For walking the walk as well as talking the talk, not to mention utterly tanking what’s left of post-modernist pretension, all the while fashioning a singular provocative poetics of dancing, in "The Stuff of Recoiling" and "Center My Heart".
