Part of the Dance in Albany Series
- Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer present their innovative “Video Partnering” choreography – the integration of performance and video technology that has been acclaimed for its highly visual and visceral alchemy of the live and the virtual. In Remembering What Never Happened, memory becomes a constantly shifting territory as they delve into the changeable nature of time, form, perception, and identity. The dancers interact with video projections of their images that morph into digital re-interpretations of the human body, while scenes shot on location in the Mojave Desert transform into surreal landscapes. In Under The Skin, the duet form explodes into a magically populated stage as Bridgman and Packer interchange with their ever-multiplying virtual selves. The performers’ bodies and costumes become projection screens, creating a redefining of identities.
