For almost a month, the BodyCartography Project, known for engaging audiences in movement in places other than the stage, will be inhabiting the Weisman Art Museum. From July 11 to 15, the group (founders Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad, along with some of the Twin Cities’ hippest, most adventurous movers) perform felt room, a three-hour immersive experience for viewers that plays with imagination and perception. Later in July and into August is action movie, a one-on-one collaboration between a dancer and a viewer; followed by Lineage, which includes U of M medical students and somatic movement practitioners. Watch, feel, join in, be moved. Felt room kicks off on Wednesday, July 11, from 6 to 9 p.m. There will be a talk with Bieringa and Ramstad on Thursday, July 12, at 7 p.m. There are many related happenings; check to see the complete schedule.
