Filling up the gaps
March 31, 2011 § 7 Comments
Bodies in the service of filling up the urban void? Choreographer Willi Dorner squeezes human bodies in brightly coloured hoods into the city’s most peculiar places. Into nooks and crannies, actually.
Bodies in Urban Spaces’ project was first conceived in an abandoned residential building in Vienna, in 2004, but it rapidly spread around the streets of the world, from London, France, Norway to downtown Manhattan. Willi Dorner works with performers, dancers and passengers, placing them into spaces where bodies normally do not go and occupying the urban landscape in a completely new way.
