PlayBAC

Performances from the Archive

PlayBAC is a series of videos from BAC's rich archive of live performances.

The second six-week installment of the series features never-before-seen recordings of dance, music, and poetry presentations spanning nearly all of BAC’s 15-year history. The videos include special introductions from Founder and Artistic Director Mikhail Baryshnikov and the featured artists.

PlayBAC is free and available to view at bacnyc.org/explore beginning July 16.

Every Thursday at 5PM EDT, a new video is posted and will remain available through the following Tuesday at 5PM EDT. The accompanying performance programs can be accessed below.
