    Halfway to Dawn

    Dec 5—8
    BAM Harvey Theater
    Tickets start at $25

    This jubilant dance-theater celebration is inspired by the openly gay jazz composer and arranger Billy Strayhorn, perhaps best known as Duke Ellington’s main collaborator.

    David Roussève’s choreography sets nine dancers to various movement styles with video elements and a score that features Strayhorn’s music, channeling the spirit of the virtuoso through past, present, and fantasy.

    The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) is a performing arts venue in Brooklyn, New York City, known as a center for progressive and avant garde performance. It presented its first performance in 1861 and began operations in its present location in 1908.

    Today, BAM has a reputation as a leader in presenting “cutting edge” performance and has grown into an urban arts center which focuses on both international arts presentation and local community needs. Its purpose is to provide an environment in which its audiences – annually, more than 775,000 people – can experience a broad array of aesthetic and cultural programs. From 1999 to 2014, BAM was headed by Karen Brooks Hopkins, President, and Joseph V. Melillo, Executive Producer. Katy Clark is now president, succeeding Hopkins who retired in spring 2015.

    Dance

    Sasha Waltz & Guests
    Directed and choreographed by Sasha Waltz

    Part of the 2018 Next Wave Festival

    Contained within weightless aluminum clouds, 14 dancers expand and contract their limits to the thrum and heartbeat of echoing space. The relentlessly exploratory choreographer Sasha Waltz (Continu, 2015 Next Wave) returns to BAM with a staggering feat of collaboration examining the human body’s fraught relationship to structures of power. Featuring sculptural costumes by Dutch couture revolutionary Iris van Herpen, stark lightscapes by designer Urs Schönebaum, and an industrial, atmospheric score by Soundwalk Collective, Kreatur conjures a hallucinatory existence where power shifts constantly and freedom can only come from within.
