BAM's "First Wave" festival with more stand-out productions and the Fourth Annual American Fine Craft Show Brooklyn are two of our picks for things to do this week in New York City. The others? Expect events that feature artist and cultural events through November 22, 2016 in NYC.

1. Brooklyn Touring Outfit “Co. Venture”

Baryshnikov Arts Center presents the Brooklyn Touring Outfit “Co. Venture” (U.S. Premiere) from November 16 through 18, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. in the Howard Gilman Performance Space.

92 year-old dance archivist David Vaughan and 31 year-old artist Pepper Fajans explore their cross-generational friendship, developed while working together on the final world tour of the Merce Cunningham Dance Company. “Co. Venture” is a duet in which the performers bring their experiences to a dance theater incorporating sculpture, puppetry, and storytelling. Developed in collaboration with visual designer Maiko Kikuchi, sound designer Joey Wolfslau, lighting designer Davison Scandrett, and director Chris Green. Celebrated Cunningham Company alumna Holley Farmer and dancer/choreographer David Neumann collaborated with Vaughan and Fajans on the creative process to develop this New York performance.

2. “Thank You For Coming: Play” at BAM

BAM presents “Thank You For Coming: Play” from November 16 to 19, 2016 at 7:30 p.m. at BAM Fisher in the Fishman Space.

Commissioned by BAM as part of the 2016 New Wave Festival. Brooklyn-based choreographer Faye Driscoll is interested in excess, emotionality and the messier aspects of what it means to be human. In her hyper-theatrical and intimate trilogy “Thank You For Coming,” performers and audience members come together in a shared space of culpability and care. This season, Driscoll—this year’s Harkness Foundation Artist in Residence at the BAM Fisher—makes her BAM debut with “Play,” the second piece in the trilogy, performing with five dancers to explore the fractured nature of language.

Tickets start at $25. Run time is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes. BAM Fisher is located at 321 Ashland Pl, Brooklyn, NY 11217. www.bam.org.

4. MoMA PS1 Sunday Sessions: “Black Radical Imagination”

MoMA PS1 presents “Black Radical Imagination” on Sunday, November 20, 2016 from 4 to 6 p.m.

Sunday Sessions invites Amir George and Erin Christovale of Black Radical Imagination to present a screening program featuring short films by Jamilah Sabur and Suné Woods, among others. Black Radical Imagination is a touring program of visual shorts that delve into the worlds of new media, video art, and experimental narrative, growing out of a series of discussions about the boundaries and limitations that people of color have historically faced in the realm of the cinematic.

Focusing on new stories within the Diaspora, each artist contributes their own vision of postmodern society through the state of contemporary black culture. An artistic movement as well as a school of thought, Black Radical Imagination uses cinema to explore the aesthetics of afrofuturism and afrosurrealism.

Tickets are $12 and $10 for MoMA members. MoMA PS1 is located at 22-25 Jackson Ave, Long Island City, NY 11101. www.momaps1.org.

5. Artists Studio at Park Avenue Armory

The Park Avenue Armory presents “Artists Studio: Ryan Trecartin, Lizzie Fitch, Ashland Mines and Aaron David Ross” on Monday, November 21, 2016 at 7 and at 9 p.m. in the Veterans Rooms.

Within these fluidly structured and visually commanding works, Ryan Trecartin’s groundbreaking sound design—a densely layered mix of rapid-fire dialogue, electronic music and live instrumentation—extends the depth, intensity, and hilarity of his art. He is joined by his principal collaborator Lizzie Fitch, music producer and DJ Ashland Mines (aka Total Freedom), and composer/producer Aaron David Ross (who will be conducting and doing the music direction) to present a new, digitally-inflected sonic composition live for the very first time.

Tickets are $45. The Park Avenue Armory is located at 643 Park Ave, New York, NY 10065. www.armoryonpark.org.
