A one-on-one dance experience in the Gallery where dancers lead you through a unique tour using movement to explore art in new ways.
Presented by Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad of BodyCartography Project, Follow was commissioned in 2017 for the collection of the Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa as its first intangible dance acquisition.
Each iteration of the 30-minute interactive performance is site specific, activating your senses and encouraging deep connections with the surrounding art and architecture.
As dancers guide you through the gallery, even the simple act of opening and closing your eyes becomes a revelation. Immediate, personal, physical – this immersive movement tour will transform the way you experience art.
Olive Bieringa (NZ) and Otto Ramstad (USA) currently live in Oslo, Norway. They are deeply invested in the power of live performance to facilitate a re-enchantment of embodiment, relationship, and presence. They have created performances, installations, films, workshops, talks, festivals and curatorial projects around the world. Presenters include Walker Art Center, Minnesota, Performance Space 122, NYC, Portland Institute of Contemporary Arts, Lyon Opera Ballet, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Oslo City Department of Cultural Affairs amongst others.
