VIDEO: Preview BAM At Brooklyn Academy Of Music's Next Wave Festival

BroadwayWorld has a first look at BAM as part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music Next Wave Festival.

In this love letter to our species, Australian troupe Circa (Opus, 2015 Next Wave) takes us on an acrobatic journey through our shared humanity. Asking how much weight we can carry and who we can trust for support, 10 performers execute breathtaking sequences of circus acts, displaying physical and emotional strength as they manipulate, contort, and catapult one another in death-defying feats. With stage and bodies stripped to a bare minimum, Humans is an exhilarating survey of the many conditions of being human-and a testament to just what we are capable of with a little vulnerability and the help of our loved ones.

The production is created by Yaron Lifschitz with the Circa Ensemble and features costume design by Libby McDonnell.

2018 Next Wave Festival subscriptions are on sale June 19 (June 12 for BAM Members). Single tickets for all Next Wave Festival shows go on sale Aug 9 (Aug 2 for BAM Members). To purchase tickets visit or contact BAM Ticket Services at 718.636.4100.
