Toi Art – Immersive Movement Tours

Dancers lead you through the new art galleries on a unique tour that uses movement to explore art in new ways. This one-on-one walking tour will activate your senses and encourage deep connections with the surrounding art and architecture. Developed and choreographed by Olive Bieringa of BodyCartography Project, this tour is delivered by Footnote New Zealand Dance company members.

Footnote New Zealand Dance and Guangdong Modern Dance Company (GDMDC) are co-producing a full evening-length programme in 2018, Hemispheres, a collaboration that will be between the longest-running contemporary dance companies in New Zealand and in China. A project two years in the making before its development in the Guangdong studios in April, Hemispheres will include Mass Solitude, a new work by Sarah Foster-Sproull, featuring seven dancers from each company that will anchor a high quality triple bill programme of contemporary dance.
