STDMA is pleased to provide representation for Willi Dorner‘s latest performance „fitting“. Following on from his worldwide sensation, Bodies in Urban Spaces, „fitting“ explores further Dorner’s ideas around transformation of the urban environment through human interaction.
„fitting“ takes as it’s starting point a simple plank of wood which is manipulated around four performers to provide a unique location for them in pre-designated outdoor public spaces – a wall, staircase, building or amongst street furniture.
A dozen or more such body/plank manipulations form a 15 minute trail through the streets which audiences follow, leading them towards a 30 minute performance installation (indoor or outdoors) during which the four performers demonstrate the principle of creating space by “building” a house, inspired by the Japanese term tatami (derived from tatamu, meaning to fold or pile), using 12 panels of spruce and 4 chairs.
„fitting“ is available for touring in 2015.
