Austrian choreographer Willi Dorner will work with Cincinnati area dancers to present Bodies in Urban Spaces in downtown Cincinnati for two performances. Bodies in Urban Spaces is a moving trail of site-specific interventions, choreographed for a group of dancers. The performers lead the audience through selected parts of public and semi-public spaces. A chain of physical interventions set up very quickly and only existing temporarily, allowing the viewer to perceive the same space or place in a new and different way. As soon as it is assembled and perceived, the dancers and audience are on the run to a new space.
Vienna/Austria based Cie. Willi Dorner was founded by Willi Dorner in 1999. Besides his international touring dance performances Willi Dorner is keen on creating events that give the audience the opportunity for new experiences, insights and a different perception of everyday life. His interdisciplinary works are developed in cooperation with artists and scientists of different fields.
