The New York Dance and Performance Awards (The Bessies), New York City’s premier dance awards honoring outstanding creative work in the field, last night announced the nominees for the 2014-15 season and two 2015 awards were presented at its annual press conference. This year’s Bessies Jury – Susan Marshall, Shen Wei, and Reggie Wilson – named Pavel Zuštiak as the recipient of the 2015 Juried Bessie Award. The Outstanding Emerging Choreographer Award was presented to Storyboard P.

Zuštiak was recognized for his poetic layering of movement and visual imagery, conceiving the stage space as a decentralized world in which the corporeal body is the focus and canvas for a wide range of human expression.
