Bridgman | Packer Dance's highly visual and visceral work intertwines live performance and video technology, creating a magically populated stage where image and reality collide. Truck is performed inside a 17-foot box truck with the audience viewing from the outside creating a reimagined space that dynamically combines choreography, video, sound design, and music. Join us at Park Hill Orchard in Easthampton, the Brattleboro Gallery Walk, or on the UMass Campus for an altogether different performance experience. "Witty, sexy, and surreal." -The New Yorker.
