Dance meets film meets virtual reality: Bridgman|Packer Dance will present two works featuring choreographers/performers Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer's innovative work in “Video Partnering”—the integration of live performance and video technology— running July 13, 14, 16 at 7:30pm at Sheen Center, 18 Bleecker Street, as part of their new series The Art of The Duo. The evening also includes an interactive installation which will allow audience members to experience the video technology first-hand.

"Voyeur" (2012) 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; the presence of a seen or unseen viewer lies at the heart of "Voyeur." The work also includes an installation component: prior to the performance, the audience is invited to enter the set to explore the projections and live cameras.

In "Remembering What Never Happened" (2015), memory slips seamlessly into imagination, delving into the changeable nature of time, form, perception, and identity. The performers merge with video projections of their images that morph and explode into digital re-interpretations of the human body; scenes shot on location in the Mojave Desert transform into surreal landscapes.

Bridgman|Packer Dance will perform in the Loreto Theater at Sheen Center for Thought & Culture on July 13, 14 and 16 at 7:30 pm. Tickets are $25 ($15 for students and seniors) and are available by calling (212) 925-2812 or online at http://sheencenter.org/shows/bridgmanpacker-dance/
