Citation, 2008 New York Dance and Performance Award (Bessie) for FrÓ“ulein Maria
â€śFor creating a tender, rollicking excursion at Joeâ€™s Pub called FrĂ¤ulein Maria, which took us from the snow-capped peaks of Hollywood through the worlds of â€śdowntownâ€ť dance, Martha Graham, Willi Ninja, Balanchine, Hip-Hop, Voguing, Stepping, stomping, whirling, and flying like wild geese with the moon on their wings.â€ť
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 whatâ€™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.
