User Not Found at BAM

User Not Found goes to New York with BAM!

We are thrilled to be preparing for our US debut as part of BAM's Next Wave Festival. User Not Found will play at the Greene Grape Annex from 6 - 16 November. All of the tickets have SOLD OUT!

Acknowledged as “the home for adventurous artists, audiences, and ideas,” the Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) engages global and local communities with theater, dance, music, opera, film, and media. BAM Artistic Director David Binder’s programming for his first Next Wave features a range of remarkable artists, all making their BAM debuts. Binder said, “Next Wave is a place to see, share, and celebrate the most exciting new ideas in theater, dance, music, and especially, the unclassifiable adventures.”
