Dance, art galleries, museums, lectures -- you name it, there are plenty of things to do in NYC. From the New York City Ballet, to Alvin Ailey, from performances at the Metropolitan Opera, to live music at Madison Square Garden, New York has it all. Here is a selection of what's going on in New York this week.

Emily Johnson - The Thank-you Bar - New York Live Arts
Through November 12, 2011 -

A jukebox. A roadside bar. A fish that never dies. The Thank-you Bar is a new performance/installation of dance, live music, storytelling and visual image connecting ideas of displacement, longing, and language to history, architecture, and igloo-myth. The Thank-you Bar is created and performed by Alaska-born choreographer Emily Johnson with composers/musicians James Everest and Joel Pickard.

BLACKFISH - New York Live Arts
November 12, 2011 -

For one night only, BLACKFISH performs a companion concert after Emily Johnson's The Thank-you Bar. Known for live improvised duets in surround-sound installation environments, BLACKFISH creates spontaneous sounds and songs that span from the intricate and sparse to dense, layered, sonic constructions. Playing pedal steel guitar, upright bass, and acoustic guitars through a myriad of effects and looping pedals, BLACKFISH is James Everest and Joel Pickard.

Sydney Dance Company - Joyce Theater
Through November 13, 2011 -

Sydney Dance Company returns to The Joyce in a fresh guise under the exuberant artistic direction of the Barcelona-born choreographer Rafael Bonachela, a self-proclaimed "movement junkie," whose works are packed with intricate and continually changing patterns. Vividly imagined, his sensuous aesthetic has signaled a new chapter for the legendary company whose dancers infuse the stage with "creative precision and exhilarating energy." (Sydney Morning Herald) For its Joyce season, the company performs the U.S. premieres of two acclaimed Bonachela works set to commissioned scores by Italian composer Ezio Bosso.

American Ballet Theatre - New York City Center
Through November 13, 2011 -

From great classics to innovative premieres, American Ballet Theatre's world-class dancers bring their dramatic artistry and thrilling bravura to take dance to new heights this fall. Enjoy mixed repertory programs featuring ballets by an impressive roster of choreographers, including Twyla Tharp, Merce Cunningham, Martha Clarke, Paul Taylor and ABT's Artist-in-Residence, Alexei Ratmansky.

Duality of Light - Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts
Through November 13, 2011 -

Lobby of Alice Tully Hall - Broadway at 65th Street - FREE -

One at a time, in the lobby of Alice Tully Hall, visitors enter a long, dark corridor of sound, stepping uncertainly toward an unsettling encounter. This immersive, responsive sound-and-light installation by Australian artist Lynette Wallworth, inspired by a visit to the Preah Khan temple at Kompong Svay in Cambodia, is a unique experience for every visitor.

Canyon - Brooklyn Academy of Music
Through November 19, 2011 -

Witty, incessantly curious, and smart as a whip, choreographer John Jasperse (Misuse liable to prosecution, 2007 Next Wave) has trained his singularly skewed worldview on all manner of disciplines, including architecture, finance, and aesthetics. In his latest work, Jasperse tackles wonder and the ineffable—the transformative power of losing oneself in visceral experience—where the supremacy of the intellect is humbled into a state of awe. Created in collaboration with five dancers and performed to a live score by composer Hahn Rowe, Canyon plays with engineered disorientation, sensory overload, spaciousness, fractured connectivity, and rapture.

Richard Move and MoveOpolis! - Martha@...The 1963 Interview - New York Live Arts
Through November 19, 2011 -

The acclaimed Martha@... The 1963 Interview returns for encore performances after a sold-out run last season. The production is a metatheatrical recreation of the legendary 92nd Street Y interview with Martha Graham and dance critic Walter Terry. Based on the recently discovered audio recording, the interview reveals Graham's iconic persona with intimate reflections on her unparalleled life and career. Martha@... The 1963 Interview features Richard Move as Graham, Tony Award-nominated actress/playwright Lisa Kron as Terry and Move's illustrious, longtime collaborators, Graham Company Principal dancer Katherine Crockett and former Graham Company member Catherine Cabeen, with a new-media scenic design by Gabriel Barcia-Colombo.

Complexions Contemporary Ballet - Joyce Theater
Through November 27, 2011 -

"Fabulous bodies doing fabulous things," says The New York Times about Complexions. The company's Joyce fall season showcases a world premiere created by Dwight Rhoden to pay tribute to co-Artistic Director Desmond Richardson, who has announced that 2011-2012 will be his final year as a touring performer with Complexions. The work will be performed by Richardson to a commissioned score by the sensational jazz composer and pianist Eric Lewis.
