The Next Wave Festival is the signature program of BAM, the Brooklyn Academy of Music. With a line-up of emerging artists and innovative modern masters, the festival features contemporary performances, avant-garde music, theatre, opera and dance. It has been described as adventurous art for adventurous audiences.
The 2019 festival program* was printed entirely on vellum loosely based on the idea of experiencing what comes next. Comprising individual booklets for each of the 10 events, the cover was a tribute to the rich history of the festival as well as the raw and audacious energy that the festival has come to be known for.
