Summer Events

Dark Room

A World Premiere by George Brant

Bridge Repertory Theater

JULY 27 - AUGUST 16, 2018


A figure in the wall paper. A floating door. A bowl of eels. Wings.


These and other images have been left behind in the haunting, black and white photography of Francesca Woodman, a prolific prodigy who died by suicide in 1981 at the age of 22.


Decades later, her work, her life, and her death captured the imagination of playwright George Brant, author of DARK ROOM.


In the play, eleven scenes unfold, each inspired by a different photograph from Woodman's canon. A single, silent protagonist -- a simple girl in a polka dot dress -- navigates the journey.


Under the direction of Olivia D'Ambrosio, this world premiere production will feature an epic cast of 22 women, and original movement devised by Doppelgänger Dance Collective.


At once humorous, dark, eerie, and poetic, DARK ROOM will play this summer in our stunning, historic theater. Please join us for this unforgettable theatrical event. Visit for more information.

Paintings by Annie Fowler


July 6, 2018 - September 7, 2018

Gallery Reception: Friday, July 13, 2018 from 6-8pm

TAXIS DERMA is a collection of paintings created by Annie Fowler inspired by Magic Realism – a creative genre made prominent through Latin American literature. In her efforts to express the sensation of recurring memories, and what it’s like to deal with a multiplicity of traumatic experiences, she creates surrealist and magical realist landscapes and portraits; morphing and transforming from one figure into the next, in a constant state of organic growth combating deconstruction.


The Greek origin words for ‘taxidermy’ roughly translate to ‘arrangement of skin’ in the act of preserving in order to maintain the appearance of life.
