Our dance-packed October gets off to a vibrant start with the Bessie Award–winning Seán Curran's BAM performance of Dream'd in a Dream, a new work forged from the choreographer's collaboration with Ustatshakirt Plus, a Kyrgyz musical ensemble. Composer Nurlanbek Nishanov has created traditional “mountain music” for Curran—full of lute, ocarina and ancient bowed fiddle—and since the mountains in question are the Himalayan Tien Shan (legendary home of the gods), technically the results should be divine. As ever, the runs at BAM are short, but if you miss this dream, check out our picks of the best dance events this week.
