Les Ballets Trockadero de Monte Carlo

Modern, Classical Dance, Comedy
Since its inception in 1974, this all-male ensemble has established itself as a major dance phenomenon -- masterfully performing and parodying the full range of the ballet and modern dance repertoire with zany humor and balletic skill. The “Trocks” comedy is achieved by incorporating and exaggerating the foibles, accidents, and underlying incongruities of serious dance. Men dance all the parts—heavy bodies delicately balancing on toes as swans, sylphs, water sprites, romantic princesses, and angst-ridden Victorian ladies. Their performance will delight and amuse the most knowledgeable dance fans as well as novices to ballet.

It's been nearly 45 years since Tim Hauser set out to form a harmony vocal quartet sui generis that could authentically embrace varied musical styles, and still create something wholly unique in the field of American popular song. Today, after Grammy Awards by the dozen, worldwide sales in the millions of hits like "The Boy From New York City," "Birdland," "Java Jive," "Tuxedo Junction" and "Operator," Now consisting of Janis Siegel (alto), Alan Paul (tenor), Cheryl Bentyne (soprano), and newcomer Trist Curless (bass) who replaced Hauser following his passing on October 16, 2014, The Manhattan Transfer remain restless, adventurous, limitless and, as the Philadelphia Inquirer so aptly put it, a group that "still can sound dangerous!"

Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater

Classical Dance, Modern
Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater grew from a now-fabled performance in March 1958 at the 92nd Street Y in New York City. Led by Alvin Ailey and a group of young African-American modern dancers, that performance changed forever the perception of American dance. The Ailey company has gone on to perform for an estimated 25 million people at theaters in 48 states and 71 countries on six continents, reaching millions more through television broadcasts, film screenings, and online platforms. In 2008, a U.S. Congressional resolution designated the Company as "…a vital American cultural ambassador to the world."

Yamato Drummers of Japan

World
The Yamato Drummers, bare-armed, muscles working, fill the stage with energy and pulsing rhythm. In the past, you'd have to travel to Japan to experience the troupe's physical music and traditional instruments – among them, floor drums, drums suspended from the shoulders on straps, drums carved from huge oak trees and the sounds of three-stringed instruments and bamboo flutes. Yamato is the ancient word for Japan, and in this performance, an invigorating, vicarious journey there as well. The Yamato Drummers present a powerful performance, not to be missed!

Tanztheater Wuppertal Pina Bausch

Modern
In 1984, Tanztheater Wuppertal made its New York debut at BAM, performing what would become the two most iconic works of Pina Bausch’s repertoire. The company returns with a landmark restaging of that historic double bill. In the autobiographical "Café Müller," a sleepwalking woman staggers, arms outstretched, through a dark, cramped restaurant. Amid the plaintive swell of Henry Purcell’s arias, a cast of devastated characters plays out a litany of tender cruelties as they lift, drop, and chase each other in a feedback loop of perpetual disappointment. In "The Rite of Spring," Bausch’s ferocious interpretation of Stravinsky’s notorious work, 32 dancers prowl a dirt-covered stage in a hyper-physical carnival of fear and desire.
