Baryshnikov Arts 2024 Spring Programming is a Must-Do in New York City this Spring

Baryshnikov Arts has announced its 2024 Spring Season which builds on the organization’s rich history as a multi-disciplinary, multi-haven for artistic freedom. Performances will take place at the Jerome Robbins Theatre at Baryshnikov Arts, located at 450 W 37th St, NYC.

“True to form, we are ushering in Spring 2024 with the doors of our beautiful Jerome Robbins Theater open to fresh ideas and exciting new disciplines. There's something for everyone and I can't wait to share it with you,” says Founder and Artistic Director Mikhail Baryshnikov.

The season will open with MERCE / MISHA / MORE, a program of films celebrating decades of friendship, mutual admiration, and the working relationship between Mikhail Baryshnikov and Merce Cunningham. This will be followed by a newly commissioned dance piece, 4 | 2 | 3, from Baye and Asa, focusing on the generational impacts of climate change using the “Riddle of the Sphinx” as an allegorical structure. In late April, violinist Alexi Kenney and visual artist Xuan will collaborate on Shifting Ground, which weaves together pieces for solo violin and violin/electronics by J.S. Bach and composers of other eras to form a program with dramatic arc, flow, and scope with the season. The Spring seasons concludes with the little OPERA theatre of ny’s family friendly production Jupiter’s Journey to the Earth in May, a chamber opera for all ages sung in English and based upon the story of “Philemon and Baucis” from Ovid’s “Metamorphoses.”.

Baryshnikov Arts, founded in 2005 by Mikhail Baryshnikov, is rooted in the belief that artists hold irreplaceable roles in our world, shaping perspectives, offering new approaches, and initiating crucial conversations in complex social, political, and cultural environments. Baryshnikov Arts supports extraordinary performers to experiment with unique artistic expression that asks audiences to view the world in new ways. We offer performance opportunities, artist residencies, and more. In October 2022 Baryshnikov Arts welcomed a new Executive Director, Sonja Kostich, with a focus on cultivating and supporting new perspectives. With the recent rebrand of the organization in June 2023, Baryshnikov Arts expands its capacity to create multi-platform and collaborative havens for artistic expression, innovation and freedom as we commit further to elevating and sharing the stories of artists of diverse cultures and histories.
