BodyCartography Project: Walk with me

In Walk with me, 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.

Walk with me 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 Walk with me were 17 March – 29 April 2018. We are planning further performances in July and October.
