Dixon Place's 4th Annual Tom Murrin Performance Award Ceremony
Dixon Place announces the recipient of the 4th Annual Tom Murrin Performance Award, also known as "The Tommy." A transformative career opportunity for an emerging NYC-based artist or company, this year's award will be presented to Laurie Berg, known for her absurd, darkly humorous choreography and living collages.
The Tommy is an annual award granted to a NYC-based early career artist or company who embodies Tom Murrin's generous artistic spirit and gift for unearthing big, meaningful ideas by creating resourceful, exuberant, mysterious, enlightening, theatrical, luminous and remarkable performance. The award was created in 2013 to honor Murrin, who passed away in 2012. He was an inspiration, a mentor and a role model for countless young and emerging artists.
The award provides a yearlong residency to its recipient, followed by a 3-night run at Dixon Place and an honorarium. Past recipients include ANIMALS Performance Group (2013), Andrew Schneider (2014) and Monstah Black (2015).
