The A.W.A.R.D. Show! was created in 2005 by choreographer Neta Pulvermacher/The Neta Dance Company, Scott Kasen and producer Marisa König Beatty in response to a need for a lab-like space in which working dance artists can engage in an open dialogue with the audience about the work presented. It is dedicated to nurturing new work, discussion, exploration, creativity and the free exchange of ideas, thoughts and opinions.
The A.W.A.R.D. Show! 2010–2011 is administered by The Joyce Theater Foundation.
