“Bodies in urban spaces” is a moving trail, 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, allows the viewer to perceive the same space or place in a new and different way – on the run. The special quality of each place at various times of the day creates unique presentations. Photos: “Bodies in Urban Spaces”, September 26, 2010. (Photos by Andrew Russeth)
