American Choreographer and Social Activist Jonathan Hollander To Receive Award from the German Federal Government
Joining the ranks of leaders in the fields of academia, foreign affairs, science, social work and arts, Jonathan Hollander, President and Artistic Director of Battery Dance, has been selected by German President Frank Walter Steinmeier to receive the Federal Cross of the Order of Merit, which German Consul General David Gill will bestow on Monday, June 18, 2018, at 6 p.m. in New York.
The award, presented previously to dancers Pina Bausch, Sasha Waltz and John Neumeier, and soprano Renee Fleming, is being given to Hollander in honor of his 'leadership in bringing together young people across borders through cultural exchange.' Hollander has been cited for 'impacting the lives of people in America and Germany in a remarkable way.'
