Artist of the Year 2007, Minneapolis-St.Paul City Pages

“The pleasure of viewing is so intense here, so fun as to be nearly guilty.” – Lightsey Darst, MSP magazine 2008

“We are treated to unobstructed views of a cast of extraordinary movers.” – Mary Hodges, Brooklyn Rail, 2009

“Visually stunning, intricately choreographed…scenes of tense calm and silent impact.” – Justin Schell, mnartists.org, 2008

“A concentrated sense of emotional truth.” – Roslyn Suclas, New York Times 2009

1/2 Life investigates the survival of the body amidst a world of scientific research, data, and control. The performance hovers geographically at the edges of the Pacific Ocean – connecting nuclear super power USA, atomic survivor Japan and nuclear free New Zealand. A contemporary ritual to address our dormant nuclear nightmares. Dance and video artists Olive Bieringa and Otto Ramstad bring together an extraordinary collaborative team including composer and harpist Zeena Parkins, visual artist Emmett Ramstad, physicist Bryce Beverlin II, performer Takemi Kitamura and a critical mass of twelve including Sinan Goknur, Becky Olson, Taja Will, Jennifer Arave, Kimberly Lesik, Emma Rainwater, Melissa Birch, Laressa Dickey, Melissa Guerrero, Sharon Mansur, Laura Grant and Nick LeMere.

1/2 Life was made possible with support from the Rockefeller MAP Fund, the Jerome Foundation, the Metropolitan Regional Arts Council, the Archibald Bush Foundation, Arts International, Minnesota State Arts Board, and the Moore Family Fund
