Bodies in Urban Spaces
Choreographer Willi Dorner invites us on a physical, ephemeral intervention in Jerusalem’s public space.
In this performative tour, Dorner and 15 local dancers lead a group along a site-specific walk, during which they create physical compositions that reframe Jerusalem’s urban architecture. From Anna Ticho House, through the alleyways of Nahalat Shiv’a, to the impressive buildings on King David Street – the dancers use their bodies to form temporary colorful structures on the backdrop of the Jerusalem stones, creating a physical architecture that underscores the lens through which we look at our surroundings.
Vienna-based Cie. Willi Dorner was founded in 1999. In addition to creating dance pieces for the stage, Dorner also collaborates with scientists and artists from various disciplines on events that offer the audience a different perception of everyday life. Iterated in many cities around the world, Bodies in Urban Space invites us to expand our perception of the boundaries demarcated by the city and the playful possibilities held within them.
