BAM sets Next Wave

Pina Bausch piece set for 2012 festival

Theater outings from Ivo van Hove, Anne Bogart and the Civilians are on tap for the Brookyn Academy of Music’s 2012 Next Wave Festival, also set to include a production of “Einstein on the Beach” and the final work by choreographer Pina Bausch, who was the subject of doc “Pina.”

The festival’s sked of international programming also incorporates the inaugural offerings in the soon-to-be-completed flexible space in the Richard B. Fisher Building, a new addition to the multi-venue arts presenter BAM.

Van Hove and Dutch troupe Toneelgroep Amsterdam return to Gotham for “Roman Tragedies,” a five-hour marathon of three Shakespeare plays, “Julies Caesar,” “Anthony and Cleopatra” and “Coriolanus,” while Bogart and SITI Company offer Greek tragedy, “Trojan Women (After Euripedes).” Other theater offerings include a “Grapes of Wrath”-inspired work from the Builders Association, “House/Divided,” and a production of Ionesco’s “Rhinoceros” from Theatre de la Ville in Paris. Icelandic auteur Gisli Orn Gardarsson brings the Vesturport Theater and Reykjavik City Theater’s production of “Faust: A Love Story.”

Off Broadway regulars The Civilians, presenting the latest iteration of their show “Paris Commune,” play BAM’s new Fishman Space in the Fisher Building. A range of performance disciplines are lineup for the Fishman, including site-specific artworks “Brookyn Bred,” Derrick Adams’ solo show “The Channel” and a “cello opera” called “Elsewhere,” helmed by Robert Woodruff.

Dance, music and opera also on the slate include Robert Wilson and Philip Glass’ “Einstein on the Beach” as well as “…como el musguito en la piedra, ay si, si, si… (like moss on a stone),” the final work choreographed by Bausch before her 2009 death.

Fest kicks off Sept. 5 and runs through Jan. 19.
