The BodyCartography Project began in 1997 and is directed by Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad. Our ventures include dance performances, installation works, film/video projects and educational workshops. We investigate and create with the bodies' relationship to the physical, architectural, climatic, technological and social landscapes that we inhabit in urban/wilderness and private/public contexts. We engage and provoke audiences in diverse contexts through collaborative processes with independent artists, and national and international companies and communities. We have created works for over one hundred and thirty performance events in the USA, Canada, Brazil, New Zealand, Japan, Europe and Russia.

“Embodied Knowing” A Session on Sensory Experiences as Sources of Knowledge with Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad
13.00-15.00, Nov 18, 2021
Touch and movement form the fluid ground for all our sensory experiences, and these affect the very way we think and understand the world. We will practice approaches we can experiment with and apply to our research. How can our sensory experiences, specifically movement and touch, function as sources of knowledge in their own right, sources that inform our conceptual thinking?
