Ímã & Sem Mim Opening Night Party

After much wind, rain, and through a swath of transportation complications, the lauded Brazilian dance company Grupo Corpo opened their weekend of performances of  Ímã & Sem Mim Thursday night to a rightly enthused audience. Following the performance BAM patrons at the Producers Council level and above, along with Grupo Corpo company members, celebrated the accomplishment at an Opening Night Reception. We were particularly proud to partner with The Brooklyn Hospital Center on this event, in light of all they have done in this hectic and emotional week in the wake of Hurricane Sandy. The local hospital was well represented by Richard Becker, the president and CEO of The Brooklyn Hospital, and Carlos Naudon, chairman of The Brooklyn Hospital Center Board of Trustees. A special acknowledgement of our other guests, the Pina Bausch company who, due to the weather, are still here in New York!

Paulo Pederneiras, the artistic and technical director of Grupo Corpo, spoke on behalf of the company. As always, BAM was thrilled to have Grupo Corpo back at BAM, and its spirited performance carried into the party's festivities.

Our guests enjoyed an array of wonderful Brazilian inspired food, prepared by Great Performances. Drinks were provided by Brooklyn Brewery, and Brooklyn Gin was used to make a special cocktail lovingly named the Shaun Roberts after its mixologist, which included agave, lime juice and basil. The drink was a huge hit! Fleurs Bella, always on point electricity or not, provided the spectacular decor.

On November 13, BAM will be hosting a special offsite event for BAMfan members following the opening of Donka: A Letter to Chekhov. The party will take place at BLDG 92 at the Brooklyn Navy Yards and is sure to be a night to remember! Click here for more information.
