Twenty-two dancers make up the sculptural medium of Willi Dorner's 'Bodies in Urban Spaces' installation in Lower Manhattan. After pulling similar stunts elsewhere, this oddball choreographer has organized these color-clad hooded figures in peculiar positions on rooftops, in scaffolding and in between mail boxes.
The 'Bodies in Urban Spaces’ project is part of the 'Crossing the Line' festival for the Alliance Française’s of New York City.
