Dancer, choreographer, and 2014-15 Hodder Fellow Nora Chipaumire has received a 2014 New York Dance and Performance (Bessie) Award for Outstanding Revival for Dark Swan, a solo she reimagined as a powerful group piece. Performed by Urban Bush Women at The Joyce Theater, Dark Swan is a revival of Michel Fokine’s ballet The Dying Swan. This is the third Bessie awarded to Chipaumire, who was honored in 2007 for her body of work with Urban Bush Women and again in 2008 for her dance-theater work, Chimurenga. See the full list of 2014 Bessie Award winners here.
