BARYSHNIKOV ARTS CENTER ANNOUNCES FALL 2011 SEASON

Date: 07/30/2011 04:16

New York, NY, Wednesday, July 20, 2011 — The Baryshnikov Arts Center (BAC) is pleased to announce the
fall 2011 performance season, which runs September 8 to December 16 and features international artists from the
worlds of dance, theater, music, and film performing in BAC’s Jerome Robbins Theater and Howard Gilman
Performance Space.  
 
This fall brings BAC’s second co-presentation with Theatre for a New Audience, featuring the New York Premiere
of C.I.C.T. / Théâtre des Bouffes du Nord‘s production of Samuel Beckett’s Fragments.  In one of his
exquisitely crafted, late-career creations, renowned theater director Peter Brook and Marie Hélène Estienne
interpret the great 20th century playwright through five of Beckett’s profound shorts: Rough for Theatre I,
Rockaby, Act without Words II, Neither, and Come and Go.  Fragments will be performed by Jos Houben, Kathryn
Hunter, and Marcello Magni (Nov 9-Dec 4).
BAC’s dance presentations will feature new works by three choreographers.  Israeli choreographer Deganit
Shemy’s company will perform 2 kilos of sea, a site-specific work originally created and performed in a church
courtyard, now retrofitted for BAC’s Howard Gilman Performance Space (Sept 15-17).  New York-based
choreographer Liz Gerring will give the World Premiere of She Dreams In Code, a collaboration with composer
Michael J. Schumacher that explores relationships between movement and sound (Oct 13-16).  In a BAC co-
presentation with the Irish Arts Center, Irish step dancer Colin Dunne will perform the New York Premiere of Out
of Time, through which Dunne integrates movement, film, and spoken word into his personal investigation of the
Irish step dance tradition (Oct 19-22).  
This season’s film offerings include Buster Keaton’s 1924 classic, Sherlock, Jr., featuring the New York Premiere
of an original score composed and performed live by pianist Stephen Prutsman, with the Afiara String Quartet
(Sep 24).  BAC Flicks, BAC’s popular film and discussion series, continues with the New York Premiere of
Joseph Brodsky: In the Prison of Latitudes by Jan Andrews, a documentary about the Nobel Prize-winning
Russian poet and essayist (Nov 22).  And, the final installment of BAC Flicks: Mondays with Merce will feature
Charles Atlas’s film of Merce Cunningham’s 1968 dance, Walkaround Time (Dec 5).
Rounding out BAC’s fall season will be three music presentations.  First is a co-presentation with the Orchestra of
St. Luke’s—BAC’s new neighbors within the performing arts complex at 450 W. 37th
 Street—featuring the St.
Luke’s Chamber Ensemble’s performance of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde, arranged by Schoenberg (Sep
8-9).  BAC also hosts International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) in two World Premiere performances of
radical new evening-length works, developed by the musicians of ICE with composers/sound artists during a
weeklong residency called ICElab.  The first ICElab at BAC concert will feature work by composers Phyllis Chen
and Du Yun (Nov 4), and the second will feature work by composer Marcos Balter (Dec 16).  
 
Tickets to all events go on sale Monday, August 1, 2011 and may be purchased via BACNYC.ORG or  
866-811-4111.  A complete schedule of BAC’s fall 2011 season follows.

BAC and the Orchestra of St. Luke’s co-present a 100th anniversary performance of Mahler’s monumental song-

Deganit Shemy & Company
2 kilos of sea
September 15-17 (Thursday – Saturday at 7:30 PM)

– The New York Times   
 
Israeli choreographer Deganit Shemy’s site-specific work, originally created and performed in a church courtyard,
is retrofitted for BAC’s Howard Gilman Performance Space. Within a new context and set of boundaries, a
community of dancers explores the fragility of time, relationships, and expectation.

October 13-16 (Thursday - Saturday at 7:30 PM + Sunday at 3 PM)  
Howard Gilman Performance Space

Gerring’s “combination of precision and looseness is arresting. Furious, wild and absolutely focused, the
whole body is making a potent gesture.” – The New York Times
 
Acclaimed choreographer Liz Gerring and her longtime collaborator, composer Michael J. Schumacher, create an
oblique series of sound and movement relationships that crisscross space and time.

“An extraordinarily moving memoir in motion... It will delight and provoke in equal measure.”  
–
The Irish Independent
 
BAC and Irish Arts Center co-present internationally-acclaimed Irish step dancer Colin Dunne, who brings
movement, sound, and image together to create a provocative dialogue between past and present. Intimate and
playful, Out of Time is both an unsentimental homage to Irish step dance, and a bold investigation of Dunne’s
personal and artistic relationship with a tradition that has shaped his life.

About the Baryshnikov Arts Center  
 
The Baryshnikov Arts Center is the realization of a long-held vision by artistic director Mikhail Baryshnikov, who
sought to build an arts center in Manhattan that would serve as a gathering place for artists from all disciplines.
BAC’s opening in 2005 heralded the launch of this mission, establishing a thriving creative laboratory and
performance space for artists from around the world. BAC’s activities encompass a robust artist residency
program augmented by a variety of professional services, including commissions of new work, as well as the
presentation of performances by emerging and established artists across disciplines. Other core programs include
BAC Flicks, a film and discussion series, and The Movado Hour, a free series of hour-long chamber music
concerts. In tandem with its commitment to supporting artists, BAC is dedicated to building audiences for the arts
by presenting contemporary, innovative work at low or no cost to audiences. In February 2010, BAC opened the
Jerome Robbins Theater, which serves as an organic extension of the existing center, featuring multi-disciplinary
work, emerging talent, and international artists, and including artist-centered activity that fosters creative
exploration.
 
The Baryshnikov Arts Center is located at 450 West 37th Street (between 9th and 10th Avenues) in New York
City. For more information about the Baryshnikov Arts Center, visit www.bacnyc.org.
