Description The NY Dance and Performance Awards, The Bessies, New York City's premier dance awards honoring outstanding creative work in the field, today announced the nominees for the 2015-16 season.
Two BAM productions have been honored with nominations: “Yimbégré”/Souleymane Badolo for Outstanding Performance and Seán Curran Company’s “Dream’d in a Dream” for Outstanding Music Composition (Ustatshakirt Plus).
The 32nd annual Bessie Awards, presented in association with the Brooklyn Academy of Music, will take place on Tuesday, October 18 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House. "After five glorious years at the Apollo, we are thrilled to be bringing the awards to BAM's historic opera house," says Lucy Sexton, Executive Director of the Bessies. "It is in some sense a homecoming--BAM hosted the awards from 1985 to 1990--and it is especially meaningful as Brooklyn is home to so many artists."
