Ghost Factory


Dance Performance

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

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

Dance meets film meets virtual reality: Ghost Factory is the latest in Bridgman|Packer Dance’s body of acclaimed and genre-breaking work that features their “Video Partnering”— the integration of live performance and video technology. Inspired by the residents and vast deserted factories of Johnson City, an upstate New York town, Ghost Factory is a compelling work that reveals remnants of a past era through a contemporary lens. Live performance merges with haunting video imagery of abandoned factory buildings, evoking the humanity these spaces once held. 


Places With Hidden Stories – Pop-Up Event

October 28 & 29

In conjunction with the stage performance, there is an accompanying audio/visual installation entitled Places with Hidden Stories that further brings alive the stories of residents of Johnson City as well as those of Ybor City. Parallels will be drawn between the histories and cultures of these two historic manufacturing towns. The installation and the stage work reveal how architecture can hold a town’s human stories hidden within its walls.
