Urban Bodies is a documentation of the imaginative, immersive performance Willi Dorner brought to the City as part of the London Festival of Architecture in June. 

Dorner’s group of brightly dressed dancers, performers and free runners from London travelled through the City from Principal Place to the Barbican, creating a moving chain of temporary physical interventions and contortions. This exhibition documents their incredible journey in which the troupe intertwined and stacked their bodies in doorways, arches, alcoves, alley ways and gaps in public buildings, exploring the relationship between bodies and urban space.
