BAM Richard B. Fisher Building

What it is: With an eye toward supporting the borough that it’s called home for 150 years, the Brooklyn Academy of Music has launched a space dedicated to emerging artists, the local community and honest-to-God affordable tickets. (Any BAM Next Wave event held at the Fisher is only $20.)

Why you should care: Designed by H3 Hardy Collaboration Architecture, the building is an elegant Frankenstein’s monster: a hybrid of an old Salvation Army outpost that was erected in 1927 and a new seven-story edifice behind it. The 40,000-square-foot complex features a versatile 250-seat black box theater, a combination rehearsal hall–performance space, and a chic rooftop terrace that can be used year-round thanks to a retractable enclosure. Events coming up at the Fisher include Marc Bamuthi Joseph’s red, black & GREEN: a blues (Oct 31–Nov 4), a multimedia theater piece about environmental consciousness; The Shooting Gallery, an interactive film and music installation by local auteur Bill Morrison (Nov 8–10); and Untrained, a combo pro-amateur dance piece from Australian choreographer Lucy Guerin (Nov 27–Dec 1). 321 Ashland Pl between Hanson Pl and Lafayette Ave, Fort Greene, Brooklyn (718-636-4129, bam.org). Open now.—Jenna Scherer
