NEW YORK, NY.- The Baryshnikov Arts Center will return to in-person performances this spring after two years of online programming.

The season features eight dance and music performances, with three presented virtually. The streamed performances are a part of the center’s commissioning program, which began in fall 2020 as a way of sustaining the organization and encouraging artists to continue creating during the pandemic.

Cora Cahan, the center’s president and chief executive, said the delay in the return to live performances was because of the postponement during the pandemic of a long-planned replacement of its building’s heating, ventilation and cooling systems.

“We’re going very slowly and carefully here because we’re moving back to having audiences on site for the first time in so long,” Cahan said. “We’re thrilled to be planning for live performances in lockstep with our commissioning program that’s been so vibrant and dynamic since we began it almost two years ago.”

The season is to open with two virtual presentations: high-wire artist Philippe Petit’s “Open Practice,” about his creative process (Feb. 7-21); and a film and sound installation by Toronto choreographer Peggy Baker, “her body as words,” inspired by Simone de Beauvoir’s “The Second Sex” (Feb. 28-March 14).

The first live performances will be evenings of music by Chromic Duo, genre-fluid musicians who use prepared piano, toy piano and synthesizers (March 14-15); violinist and producer Johnny Gandelsman, who will present the New York premiere of his project “This Is America” (March 16-17); and Andy Akiho, whose “Seven Pillars,” an evening-length work for percussion, will have its New York premiere (April 7-8).

Dance programming includes performances by Ashwini Ramaswamy (April 13-15), whose “Let the Crows Come” deconstructs the Bharatanatyam form, and the world premiere of Donna Uchizono’s “Wings of Iron” (May 18-21). Both were originally scheduled for the center’s spring 2020 season. A new dance film by Omar Román De Jesús will be presented virtually (April 25-May 9).
