The Paula Citron FRESH BLOOD award for 2010 has been given to Paul Charbonneau for his work A Duet For Merideth. Charbonneau choreographed the work and performed it with Merideth Plumb. The 2010 audience choice award was a tie between Anjelica Scannura and Kyra Jean Green. The two choreographers were each awarded an opportunity to showcase their work at Enwave Theatre in FRESH BLOOD 2011.
Inaugurated in 1996 as the Paula Citron prize, the award was initially created to recognize the accomplishments of choreographers in the fFIDA International Dance Festival. With the demise of fFIDA, the prize lay dormant until 2009 when it was revived for The Chimera Project’s FRESH BLOOD.
