Willi Dorner is well-known both for his pointed works in public space and his clever play with the world of media. In his latest piece, he lets a real body collide with its virtual reality and makes tangible the dissolutionary tendencies of our selves in the pixel deserts of digital images in an ingenious live performance. many thematises the compulsion for self-mediatisation, the permanent displaying of oneself boosted by social media and the “tyranny of transparency” (Byung-Chul Han) in our society. Does one have to put oneself before the public on the Net to prove one’s existence?


Willi Dorner lives in Vienna. In 1999, he founded Cie Willi Dorner, with which he has since developed such striking performances as bodies in urban spaces, urbandrifting, above under inbetween and fitting. Besides dance pieces the choreographer keeps devising formats that open up new ways of perceiving everyday life to the audience.

The mobile urban installation bodies in urban spaces, a human sculpture parcours in urban space, has been staged in more than eighty cities all over the world and was also part of the 2016 fall/winter campaign of fashion designer Jacquemus. Willi Dorner previously presented Dance Karaoke at TQW as well as one in the scope of the Feedback platform.
