If you find the time, I recommend one of the many dance performances that are included in the 2010 Next Wave Festival at BAM, (Brooklyn Academy of Music). BAM’s mission is to be the “preeminent, progressive performing and cinema arts center of the 21st century”, and they fulfill that splendidly by staging a performance by legendary dance-theater pioneer Pina Bausch’s company Tanztheater Wuppertal. Go. Go see Pina Bausch’s dance company. Go to anything at the Next Wave festival. You’ll remember it twenty years from now.
