A demonstration to highlight the desperation in the arts community of the rent increases and the mass evictions. We were asked to come in black, so we came dressed in white, amongst seemingly, a sea of goths. Many of the other artists present were musicians. We worked with a walking and dying score. Allowing other demonstrators to walk over us as they passed. This created a really interesting rhythm in the way we experienced the procession moving up Market street. Part two of our score was as a group to carry the ‘dead’ body of another cartographer, through the sea of black clad bodies. Another visually stunning image.
Performers: Heike Wrede, Lawrenzo Share, Olive Bieringa, Otto Ramstad, Rosemary Hannon, Steven Kessler

Fluid Spaces Research February-April 2021
TanzFabrik offers an online workshop and research opportunity with Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad.
We are looking for dancers who are interested in a process which will begin as a workshop and will evolve into a series of site based investigations. We will research how embodied embryological knowledge can grow a dance that transforms the way we, performers and audience alike, experience our own bodies/selves/environment. Interested individual participants or pods please apply by 8th of January. The spaces are limited to 25. Read more.
closer(solo) returns to the Performance Arcade in Wellington February 2021
closer lays bare the power of physicality and presence through a series of one-on-one performances, for one dancer and one audience, in public space. Together we play with how the meeting between performer and audience generates the possibility for something new. The work will be mounted with performers Josie Archer, Kosta Bogoievski, Olivia McGregor and Footnote for the tenth anniversary of the Performance Arcade.
