Olive Bieringa’s action movie is a new one-on-one walking performance. Audiences will have a 20 minute live low fi movie created just for them as they take a walk.
action movie is a performance practice designed to activate our sensing bodies to connect fully with the places we are. Audiences are offered an escape from a world of constant illumination into a practice of vibrant potentiality. A performance in which the imagination is given space to transform our understanding of the everyday. A practice in making magic through the simple act of opening, closing and opening our eyes.
“Very few performances make the present so vivid and felt as Olive Bieringa’s action movie. A simple proposal of being guided with your eyes closed became a profound experience of my body and senses, located and dislocated in a sensuous, outdoor municipal adventure.” choreographer and educator Judith Howard.
