Bridgman|Packer Dance will be at PS21 in Chatham, New York tomorrow at 3 p.m. presenting “Video Playground: An Interactive Video Installation” and a screening of the film “Look Out.”

“Video Playground” is an engaging interactive installation that invites participants of all ages to experience the magic of Bridgman|Packer Dance. While live video cameras capture the movements of the participants, their images are transformed into designs that are projected onto the walls of the PS21 black box theater.

“Look Out” is a film by Bridgman|Packer Dance in collaboration with cinematographer Gavin Preuss, filmed entirely with a drone camera. The screening will be followed by a talk and Q & A with Bridgman, Packer, and Preuss.

A big premiere is happening Friday night at EMPAC.

Choreographer Elena Demyanenko and filmmaker Erika Mijlin’s collaboration Echo/Archive, which has been developed in residence over this past year, is a live dance and film project which features female performers across three generations and focuses on “bodily heritage,” or the way that movements are stored and communicated between bodies. Both artists teach at Bennington College. 

Filmmaker (and the lead video artist on Echo/Archive) Erika Mijlin and EMPAC’s Curator of Theater and Dance Ashley Ferro-Murray join us.

The Cooperstown Summer Music Festival is now in its 19th season. On July 9th Grammy nominated clarinetist David Krakauer and acclaimed South African pianist Kathleen Tagg perform their collaborative project called "Breath and Hammer: Clarinet, Piano and Beyond."

Enhanced by an immersive video feed, the performance features Krakauer and Tagg’s arrangements of works by composers as diverse as New York-based visionary John Zorn and Cuban percussionist Roberto Rodriguez, as well as original compositions by Krakauer and Tagg, with influences ranging from interlocking African drumming patterns to romantic symphonic music to minimalism to Klezmer. 

David Krakauer, Kathleen Tagg and Festival Artistic Director Linda Chesis join us.

Rep. Elizabeth Esty
Official Portrait

Late Monday night, GOP members submitted a change to House rules that would have weakened the ethics office – one of the changes included fines and sanctions for certain behaviors on the House floor. Tuesday afternoon, they met again and agreed by unanimous consent to withdraw some of the changes. 

For our Congressional Corner segment, Alan Chartock spoke with Rep. Elizabeth Esty of Connecticut’s 5th District about her thoughts on protocol in the House.

A note: this conversation was recorded before the change was withdrawn. 

  The Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art at SUNY New Paltz will present a Hudson Valley sneak preview of the new documentary film Here Come the Videofreex this Wednesday - June 24th at 7 p.m. at the Rosendale Theatre, in Rosendale, N.Y.
