About the Grant

$39,000 to support Super Nature (MAP 2012), a new dance work by Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad.

About the Project

Full of artifice and animal appetites, Super Nature will engage the wild, domestic, and civilized aspects of human nature to create a radical ecological melodrama that will premiere at the Walker Art Center’s McGuire Theater in October 2012.

Research for Super Nature includes an intimate performance installation designed for an audience of one, bringing live bodies into the gallery to create one-on-one experiments in empathy. Bessie award–winning composer Zeena Parkins and visual artist Emmett Ramstad will join co-directors Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad.
