BodyCartography Project: Follow

In Follow, a new BodyCartography Project commission, dancers lead you through our new art galleries on a unique tour that uses movement to explore art in new ways.

This one-on-one walking tour activates your senses and encourages deep connections with the surrounding art and architecture. As dancers guide you through the new Toi Art galleries, 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.

Follow has been commissioned for Te Papa’s collection, as our first intangible dance acquisition. Developed and choreographed by Olive Bieringa of BodyCartography Project, delivered by Kosta Bogoievski, Josie Archer, and Footnote dance company’s Anu Khapung, Georgia Beechey-Gradwell, Joshua Faletua, Tyler Carney, and Adam Naughton.

The first performances of Follow were 17 Mar – 29 Apr 2018, followed by a second programme Sat 28 – Sun 29 Jul 2018.

Follow was formerly known as Walk with me.
