Playful Performance by Cie Willi Dorner is a Dance With the City

The performance Bodies in Urban Spaces by Cie Willi Dorner is a sort of dance with the city.  A troupe of dancers follow a choreographed route through a city space interacting with various public spaces.  The performance highlights the structure of urban centers often taken for granted.  It illustrates the ways in which cities' designs influence and even restrict our physical movement, and how this in turn influences our daily behavior.  Dorner's statement explains the intention of the performance saying, "'Bodies in Urban Spaces' invites the residents to walk their own city thus establishing a stronger relationship to their neighbourhood, district and town. The interventions are temporary without leaving any traces behind, but imprints in the eye-witnesses` memory." See more images of the performance after the jump.
