The incipient Lumberyard Contemporary Performing Arts venue is hosting its inaugural season at various venues in Catskill and Hudson, without benefit of a completed performance hall, via what it’s calling the Under Construction Summer Festival. The next presentation takes place on Saturday, July 14, when the Lumberyard hosts a “night under the stars” featuring light bites from Ca’Mea Restaurant, beverages from local Hudson breweries and Truck: a movement performance inside a 17-foot U-Haul truck by Bridgman|Packer Dance. Through Bridgman|Packer’s signature integration of live performance and video technology, an ordinary box truck evolves from the utilitarian into a reimagined space, a micro-world of visions and transformation. Exploring how context changes perception, the work ranges from evocative to humorous, to sensuous, to wacky.
There will be two performances of Truck, beginning at 8 and 10 p.m. Tickets cost $55 including refreshments. To order tickets for either event, visit www.lumberyard.org. The Lumberyard is located at 62 Water Street in Catskill.
