January 17, 2016: The Bessies Presenter Party
As a coproduction with Cathy Weis' Sundays on Broadway, The Bessies Presenter Party will salute the curators and spaces that presented the work and the artists that received 2015 Bessie Awards.
These include American Ballet Theatre, Abrons Art Center, BAM, BRIC, The Chocolate Factory, Japan Society, The Joyce, La Mama, Mark Morris Dance Group, and New York City Ballet. There will be presentations by Bessie-recognized artists Michelle Dorrance, Pavel Zustiak, David Neumann, Lauren Grant and others. We hope you will join us in raising a glass to these presenters.
Our party will happen tonight, Sunday, January 17th at WeisAcres located at 537 Broadway in SoHo from 6pm to 8pm, with the honors and remarks happening at 7pm.
We look forward to celebrating with you.
In 1975, George Macunius a Lithuanian artist and founder of the Fluxus Movement, gathered together a group of artists; together they bought 537 Broadway, an artist owned and operated building. Simone Forti, one of the
originals, passed her loft on to Cathy Weis in 2005.
Cathy Weis Projects serves the community by creating opportunities for artists to gather and exchange ideas at WeisAcres, a loft studio space at 537 Broadway. Sundays on Broadway, an ongoing event series at WeisAcres, features performances, film screenings, and all manner of gatherings on Sunday evenings.
