A Rite Opening Night Party

Last night, BAM celebrated the merging of two artistic powerhouses with the opening of A Ritethe dance theater celebration of the riot-inciting production that shook the Parisian art scene a century ago. Post show, artists from both Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and Anne Bogart's SITI Company joined audience members and guests for an opening night party in the BAM Lepercq Space.

As Anne Bogart and Bill T. Jones took the opportunity to thank those who made this incredible work possible, guests snacked on French-inspired appetizers, catered by Great Performances. A fruity signature cocktail, courtesy of Brooklyn Gin (and featuring Sugar In The Raw), and a selection of seasonal brews from Brooklyn Brewery helped keep any riot at bay.
