Joseph V. Melillo, executive producer of the Brooklyn Academy Of Music, presents the 2013 Next Wave Festival.

Fisher Building.

BAM Executive Producer Joseph V. Melillo comments, "This fall, we offer our audiences a rich assortment of adventurous, groundbreaking work by American and International Artists, including the BAM debuts of 15 dance, music, and theater-makers. It is particularly exciting, in the 31st iteration of the Next Wave Festival, to see the robust variety of productions that has been made possible with the addition of the flexible Fishman Space-now in its second season of unique festival engagements."

BAM President Karen Brooks Hopkins says, "We are enormously grateful to American Express for their continuing support of the Next Wave Festival. We would also like to extend our thanks to those who have made the first year of expanded family programing in the BAM Richard B. Fisher Building a resounding success and an additional connection to our community."

"American Express is thrilled to support the artistic achievements at this year's Next Wave Festival," said Timothy J. McClimon, President, American Express Foundation. "We have a long history of celebrating the cultural passions of our Cardmembers and investing in the communities where they live and work."
