The Next Wave Festival is the signature program of BAM, the Brooklyn Academy of Music, with an unparalleled line-up of emerging artists and innovative modern masters. The festival features contemporary performances, avant-garde music, theatre, opera and dance. It has been described as adventurous art for adventurous audiences.

The festival program* was printed entirely on vellum loosely based on the idea of witnessing what comes next.

The program cover above held 11 booklets: 10 for each performance, and an Introduction. The latter contained information about the festival as a whole and a table of contents, much of it Risograph-printed gold onto vellum.

Individual booklets were designed for the 10 events. Each was subtly adapted to suit the content and mood of its event, in addition to text and image interacting on and between the translucent pages.
