Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, Guggenheim Fellows in Choreography and 2017 Bessie Awardees, are acclaimed for their innovative integration of choreography and video technology that explodes the partnering form into a magically populated stage where image and reality collide.
Bridgman |Packer Dance will be performing Table Bed Mirror and Under the Skin. Table Bed Mirror, the latest in Bridgman|Packer Dance’s genre-breaking integration of dance and video, navigates through an illogical and fantastical night of dreams. While galloping through constantly shifting realities, the work references the neuroscience of the dream process. Live performance, video, text, and sound score create an absurdist collage that intends to confound the sense of reality and flip assumptions upside down. In Under The Skin, the duet form explodes into a magically populated stage as Bridgman and Packer interchange with their ever-multiplying virtual selves. Performers’ bodies and costumes become projection screens, morphing and redefining their identities while revealing psychological depths.
“the most thrilling dance work this reviewer has seen in recent memory…flat-out exhilarating”
