The BodyCartography Project

The BodyCartography Project, the dance/performance/installation duo Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad, engages the wild and civilized aspects of human nature to produce a radical ecological melodrama. Through diosyncratic movements drawn from bodily impulses and social interactions, Super Nature aims to destroy the invisible walls between the spectator and the performer and encourages each to empathize with each other. Featuring a live score by Bessie Award–winning composer Zeena Parkins within an elaborate scenic installation by visual artist Emmett Ramstad; dancers include Justin Jones, Timmy Wagner, Emily Johnson, Anna Shogren, and Otto Ramstad with Eneka Bordato Riano and Francesca Mattavelli (both formerly with the Lyon Opera Ballet).
