This #WorldAIDSDay, we remember the countless artists lost to HIV/AIDS (like Arnie Zane, left) and remain committed to those currently fighting the pandemic (like Bill T. Jones, right). Stay strong. Stay informed. Get tested. And remember, treatment is prevention.

Tonight & tomorrow, @therealjohncale and some very special guests celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Velvet Underground & Nico.
49+ years ago, #TheVelvetUnderground (“the unusual foursome”) "rock[ed] the crystal chandeliers and flutter[ed] the flags" in our "stately foyer" at an opening night benefit before a Merce Cunningham performance at BAM.

11 years ago, Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker reprised her very first performance–Fase–in celebration of Steve Reich’s 70th birthday at #BAMNextWave 2006. First performed in 1982, the piece is comprised of three duets and one solo choreographed to four repetitive compositions by the American minimalist. De Keersmaeker uses the structure of Reich’s music to develop an independent movement idiom that not only illustrates the score, but also expands it by playing with continuously changing forms and patterns.

Prepare yourself for more pathbreaking performance this fall when the 2017 Next Wave Festival arrives on Sep 14. For tickets, visit BAM.org/NextWave (link in bio!)

In 1984, #TanztheaterWuppertal Pina Bausch made its New York debut at BAM, performing what would become the two most iconic works of #PinaBausch’s extraordinary repertoire. The company returns this September, more than three decades later, with a landmark restaging of that historic double bill.

Tickets to Café Müller/The Rite of Spring go on sale to #BAMmembers this Monday, Jul 24 💃🏻 Pictured: poster from 1984 series, courtesy of the #BAMHammArchives #tbt #cantwait
