BAM Announces Next Wave 2019

BAM Announces Next Wave 2019

BAM Artistic Director David Binder today announced programming for his first artistic season, the Next Wave 2019. With 16 adventurous engagements by artists making BAM debuts, the season includes theater, dance, music, film, site-specific, and multi-genre work across BAM's venues and off-site, as well as Holiday programming.

Binder said, "In programming my first season at BAM, I was inspired by the genesis of Next Wave and the groundbreaking work of my predecessors, Harvey Lichtenstein and Joe Melillo. Next Wave is a place to see, share, and celebrate the most exciting new ideas in theater, music, dance, and, especially, the unclassifiable adventures. We've invited a slate of artists who have never performed at BAM. Each and every one of them is making a BAM debut, with artistic work that's surprising and resonant. I'm excited to launch this season and to build BAM's next chapter with you."

BAM President Katy Clark said, "This is an incredible time for our institution. In the fall we'll present an exciting first season from our new artistic director, David Binder. With the launch of our season, BAM will unveil BAM Strong, a new building featuring our first dedicated art gallery--The Rudin Family Gallery-providing an additional artistic space on our campus. We have many wonderful adventures ahead of us, and I'm grateful to Bloomberg Philanthropies and to all our donors for their generous and much appreciated support of all that we do."
