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.
