Immersive Movement Tours with BodyCartography Project
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 and led by Kosta Bogoievski and Josie Archer.
The event will take place in Gibbs 1, Gibbs 2 and Gibbs 3 Exhibition Halls.
