must fest attendance: bam's next wave festival. shar's a little ashamed that having lived in brooklyn for almost 2 years i have yet to attend the next wave festival. i'm determined to go this year and there is a ton of good stuff. at the top of my list is in juliette binoche's venture into dance, in-i.
shar is intrigued by the long count, a pairing of the brothers dessner of the national and matthew ritchie. the piece combines visual and instrumental art into one. shara from my brightest diamond and the sisters deal of the breeders will be lending their vocals too. sounds like some indie rock heaven to me.
lastly, there's the dame of all dames, cate blanchett, in a streetcar named desire. this isn't part of the next wave festival, but a must at bam. who's down to get their culture on in bk?
