Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, Artistic Directors of Bridgman|Packer Dance, are collaborators in performance and choreography, with their current work focusing on the integration of live performance and video technology.
Bridgman|Packer Dance will present Voyeur, their highly acclaimed work that received a 2017 New York Dance and Performance Award (The Bessies). Choreographer/performers Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer's innovative work features their “Video Partnering”— the integration of live performance and video technology. Voyeur is inspired by artist Edward Hopper’s world of color, light, perspective, and under-the-surface eroticism. Fragmented moments of private lives are witnessed through windows and doorways. As the performers merge and collide with the video imagery, the presence of a seen or unseen viewer lies at the heart of Voyeur.
Contemporary Dance Technique Workshop

The Partnering Workshop transmits Bridgman/Packer's approach to contemporary dance partnering for beginners through advanced performers. The class is non-gender specific, emphasizes the release and ease as well as the strength of partnering and builds to develop exhilarating and risk-taking partnering in duet, trio and group forms. Participants must be 15 years of age or older.
Those attending both the workshop and the show may purchase a $25 combo ticket directly through the box office.
