Ghost Factory by Bridgman | Packer Dance
October 29 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
Ghost Factory, a 55-minute-long stage work that merges live performance with video technology, is inspired by the vast deserted factories in upstate New York, specifically in Johnson City, the former home of the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company. Choreographed and performed by Artistic Directors, Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, the work melds their live dance performance with haunting video imagery of the abandoned factories. By multiplying and transforming their video images, they evoke the humanity these massive spaces witnessed. Ghost Factory, while inspired by the town of Johnson City, NY, carries the larger themes of memory, loss, and time passing. Architecture is an essential character, transforming through time while it holds hidden stories.
