Inspired by the residents and vast deserted factories of Johnson City, an upstate NY town, Ghost Factory explores remnants of a past industrial era. Live performance merges with video imagery of abandoned buildings, evoking the humanity these spaces once held. Ghost Factory will be accompanied by Under the Skin , the duet form explodes into a magically populated stage as they interchange with their ever-multiplying virtual selves.
Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, collaborators in choreography and performance and Co-Artistic Directors of Bridgman|Packer Dance, are known for their work integrating live performance and video technology. They were awarded a 2017 New York and Performance Award for Outstanding Production (The Bessies). In New York City they have been presented by Lincoln Center, City Center’s Fall for Dance Festival, 92nd Street Y Harkness Dance Festival, Dance Theater Workshop (now New York Live Arts), Central Park Summer stage, Baryshnikov Arts Center, and The Sheen Center.
