Follow: Immersive Movement Tours with BodyCartography Project

Free event but pre-bookings necessary 

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

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

Each tour takes up to two people and runs for 30 minutes. For more information and to pre-book a tour click here.

The Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab
Time: 6pm 

The Pacific Dance Choreographic Lab is now in its tenth year with a strong alumna of notable artists and choreographers. Each year three NZ based Pacific Island choreographers are selected to create original dance works. This annual event is part of Pacific Dance NZ's development programme where NZ-based Pacific dance artists can envisage their new works and progress them through practical exploration.

Along the way, artistic support and guidance is provided by the senior dance mentors, allowing the dance artists to expand their ideas, skillsets and professionalism in dance. 

Poetry Night with Courtney Sina Meredith & Friends
Time: 7.30pm 

Join Courtney Sina Meredith alongside Paula Green, Amber Esau, Kiri Pihana-Wong, Kim Meredith, Grace Taylor, Rosanna Raymond  and Anne Kennedy for a night of poetry inspired by our current exhibition A Place to Paint: Colin McCahon in Auckland.  

This exhibition considers McCahon’s long-time relationship with Auckland and the significance of the physical, spiritual and cultural landscape on his painting.
