A late Saturday night wandering through Vienna with the Willi Dorner company (13 October 2007).
bodies in urban space is a wonderful sculptural event. It’s really not dance, although only dancers or acrobats could perform it convincingly. All of the statues are comprised of live dancers.
There must have been about twenty sculptures in what ended up being an over an hour long walk through much of Vienna’s 16th district.
In their hoodies, the dancers were almost anonymous. You had no idea who was performing without looking at the program. Curiously, despite the anonymity Willi Dorner used many of Vienna’s best dancers for this project.
