“The coming digital season at Baryshnikov Arts Center will feature the premieres of seven video works that the organization commissioned in September… Each video will be available to stream on-demand for free at bacnyc.orgfor two weeks.

“It’s a huge experiment for us, but why not?” Mikhail Baryshnikov, the center’s founder and artistic director, said in email. “When has there ever been a better time to get creative and reimagine what we do?”

Baryshnikov said he was intrigued by the dynamics of sharing art over the internet. “Work presented on a digital platform is kind of a massive blind date,” he said. “With such global reach, the possibilities that someone will make a real connection to what they’re seeing are limitless.”
