BAM’s Next Wave Festival Line-Up Announced

MMFroman.570x380 BAM's Next Wave Festival returns
for its 27th season with quite a line-up of contemporary
performance, artist talks, literature, film, and visual art.

There are some familiar artists at this festival as well as new ones and unexpected European celebrities, including Juliette Binoche in In-I and Isabelle Huppert in Quartett, participating in this festival dedicated
to presenting "emerging artists at the forefront of their disciplines
alongside modern masters who continue to innovate, this year's Next
Wave is packed with adventurous art for adventurous audiences."
