Follow: Immersive Movement Tours with BodyCartography Project

 —  1.30pm–4.30pm (5.30pm–8pm on Tue 15 Oct)

event Details

Experience a one-on-one walking tour that activates your senses and encourages deep connections with the surrounding art and architecture. As dancers guide you through the Gallery spaces, 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.

This event was developed and choreographed by Olive Bieringa of BodyCartography project and is led by Josie Archer and Kosta Bogoievski. It was commissioned as part of the collection of Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, 2017.

Tours need to be booked in advance via eventfinda and will run every half hour from 1.30pm –4.00pm. Each tour can take up to two people and will run for 30 minutes.

On Tue 15 Oct evening tours are available as part of our ‘Late-Night Art’ event.
