The NYIT Awards - Congratulations, Asa!
We all had a great time at the NYIT Awards last night. We laughed at host Julie Halston, admired Matthew Freeman's script contributions, loved the documentary of Maria Irene Fornes, grooved with the Brick's dancing freaks, bowed down before the MFTA, and cheered the winners, most especially our own Asa Wember for Sound Design for Angel Eaters.
Flux was nominated for seven awards and took home one - not a bad night. And that same rapturous sense of community and purpose was present again - all of us in Flux are so proud and grateful to belong to a movement of such talent and generosity. Read the rest of the winners here.
There were a few sad notes - I would have loved to see more of our designers (and our extraordinary playwright!) take home some hardware - and the fact that the astonishing Universal Robots didn't take home any awards was just crazy. But that's not what these awards are about - many companies and artists I'd never heard of, in what come sometimes feel like a very small field, won big - reminding us of the width and depth of talent in Indie theatre.
CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL!
And a huge thank you the NYITA Staff.
If you were there, what were some of your favorite moments?
