Ghost Factory


Dance Performance

October 28 & 29 at 7:30 p.m.

$20.00 General Admission. Free to HCC students, faculty and staff.

Ghost Factory, a 55-minute-long stage work that merges live performance with video technology, is inspired by the vast deserted factories in upstate New York, specifically in Johnson City, the former home of the Endicott Johnson Shoe Company. Choreographed and performed by Artistic Directors, Art Bridgman and Myrna Packer, the work melds their live dance performance with haunting video imagery of the abandoned factories. By multiplying and transforming their video images, they evoke the humanity these massive spaces witnessed. Ghost Factory, while inspired by the town of Johnson City, NY, carries the larger themes of memory, loss, and time passing. Architecture is an essential character, transforming through time while it holds hidden stories.

Places With Hidden Stories – Pop-Up Event

October 28 & 29

Places With Hidden Stories is an audio/visual lobby installation created in conjunction with Ghost Factory. It further brings alive the oral histories of the people interviewed in Johnson City. While the stage work distills and fragments these stories, the installation gives them a more linear context.
