Bridgman|Packer Dance Company At HCC Ybor City


Hillsborough Community College’s Visual and Performing Arts Series presents Bridgman|Packer Dance Company, January 31 – February 1 at 7:30 p.m. in the Mainstage Theatre.

The company will be performing Table Bed Mirror and Under the Skin, while also premiering a new dance film and hosting an Artist Talk and Demonstration that is free and open to the public.

Table Bed Mirror, the latest in Bridgman|Packer Dance's genre-breaking integration of dance and video, navigates through an illogical and fantastical night of dreams. While galloping through constantly shifting realities, the work references the neuroscience of the dream process. Live performance, video, text, and sound score create an absurdist collage that intends to confound the sense of reality and flip assumptions upside down. 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.
