Ivo van Hove, Diane Paulus and More Line Up for BAM's 2017 Next Wave Festival
Joseph V. Melillo, executive producer of the Brooklyn Academy Of Music (BAM), today announced programming for the 2017 Next Wave Festival. The festival runs from September 14 through December 16 and comprises 31 dance, music, opera, theater, physical theater, and performance art engagements in the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House, Harvey Theater, and BAM Fisher. Scroll down for the full lineup!
Melillo said, "This year's Next Wave showcases artists from Switzerland to Senegal in creative dialogue with historic events, personal histories, and the present moment. We welcome back iconic companies with a rich BAM history such as Pina Bausch Tanztheater Wuppertal and Ivo Van Hove's Toneelgroep and look forward to BAM debuts from an array of emerging and established artists including Matthew Aucoin conducting his extraordinary contemporary opera, Crossing."
BAM President Katy Clark said, "The breadth of amazing work coming to our stages this fall reflects not only our vibrant mission, but speaks also to Bloomberg Philanthropies' ongoing appreciation for all we present during the Next Wave Festival-now in its 35th year. I'm immensely grateful to Bloomberg and to all our donors and funders for helping us to share this work with you. I am also continuously awed by the enthusiasm of our adventurous audiences and thankful for their ongoing support."
