The annual Fall Fête is an intimate festive evening raising funds to support performances and artist residencies at BAC year-round.
Fall Fête 2018 on October 1, hosted by the Board of Directors and Fall Fête Committee, honored the Jerome Robbins Foundation.
The event began with a reception and continued with a program in the Jerome Robbins Theater: a work choreographed by Justin Peck and performed by Mikhail Baryshnikov; an excerpt from Bach Studies (Part 1) choreographed by Benjamin Millepied and performed by L.A. Dance Project; and excerpts from the film NY Export: Opus Jazz (2010), featuring choreography by Jerome Robbins danced by members of New York City Ballet. Dinner and a silent art auction followed in the Howard Gilman Performance Space.
