Silvermine Special Performance: Bridgman-Packer Dance “Voyeur”

“Voyeur” at Silvermine Arts Center invites audiences into the evocative world of dance and video created by Bridgman | Packer Dance, Jan 19 and 20. Collaborators for over 30 years, choreographer/dancers Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer have developed a highly unique approach to integrating video into their work, making it their third party. “Voyeur” takes the paintings of American painter Edward Hopper as its point of departure. At the heart of “Voyeur,” is the seen or unseen viewer witnessing fragmented moments of private lives. Before each performance, there will be an installation component of the work, where the audience an walk through and explore the set and video projections. “An ingenious trompe l’oeil fusion of physical and video-image bodies…merged and then disappeared with magical and fascinating suddenness,” The New York Times.

The performance on Saturday, Jan 19 will be held at 7 pm and Sunday’s two performances will be held at 2:30pm and 5:00pm. Seating is limited, advance reservations are suggested.
