Willi Dorner (AT)
BODIES IN URBAN SPACES
22/23 and 29/30 September 2017
Bodies in urban spaces is an artistic intervention in city spaces for twenty performers, halfway between theatre and installation. Crowded under a bench, wedged between a group of trees, poised over a fountain, perched on top of walls or camouflaged between door jambs, the artists’ bodies take the public on an unusual itinerary through the spaces of their city. They involve passers-by, residents and the public in the discovery of new performance possibilities and offer new suggestions with which to observe already familiar places. Present for many years in the most important European festivals, the Viennese choreographer Willi Dorner creates with this unusual intervention in urban spaces a real site-specific action, working from city to city with groups of local performers.
The show is itinerant and will be covered on foot.
