BAM Next Wave Festival
September 5–January 19, 2013
Every autumn, BAM's Next Wave Festival serves as New York's most comprehensive and daring survey of progressive arts. Some of last season's highlights included The Threepenny Opera; an artist talk with BAM's own Robert Wilson; Water Stains on the Wall, a choreographic exploration of the beauty of calligraphy from Cloud Gate Dance Theatre of Taiwan; an artist talk response to September 11; and Symphony for the Dance Floor, a combination of hip-hop, pop and classical music mixed with choreography.
