8:30 PM & 9:00 PM: Bridgman|Packer Dance

Bridgman|Packer Dance will perform TRUCK, in Chalybeate Park and offer a Video Playground (video interactive installation).


Performed inside of a box truck, Bridgman|Packer Dance’s TRUCK brings performance to unusual locations. Through Bridgman|Packer’s signature integration of live performance and video technology, an ordinary box truck evolves from the utilitarian into a re-imagined space, a micro-world of magical visions and transformation. With constant shifts of context and scale, startling imagery emerges; a house of a thousand rooms, an aquarium, and a leafy hideaway come alive. The work ranges from evocative to humorous, to sensuous, to zany.

Video Playground

An Interactive Video Installation

Video Playground is an engaging interactive installation, where the public is invited to experience the magic of Bridgman|Packer Dance up close and personal. While live video cameras capture the movements of the participants, their images are transformed into designs that are projected onto nearby walls and architecture. Come move, play, and see how you transform the imagery!
