Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, Artistic Directors of Bridgman|Packer Dance, have collaborated as performers and choreographers since 1978. Their innovative work developing "Video Partnering" — the integration of live performance and video technology — has been acclaimed for its highly visual and visceral alchemy of the live and the virtual.
In Remembering What Never Happened Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer explore the intersection of memory and imagination. Expanding on their signature integration of live performance and video technology, memory becomes a constantly shifting territory as they delve into the changeable nature of time, form, and perception. Bridgman and Packer interact with their video images that morph and explode into digital re-interpretations of the human body, while scenes shot on location in the Mojave Desert transform into surreal landscapes. In a departure from their past work, this piece incorporates simultaneous computer video processing with time-delay and image altering capabilities. Multiple video images appear and evaporate in response to the performers’ movements and evolve from photo realism into strokes of abstraction. The work rides the line between the constant and the shifting, the tangible and the subconscious, while exploring the plasticity of memory and experience.
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.
