I discovered Austrian artist, Willi Dorner, via hintmag.com and became instantly intrigued from his project “Bodies in Urban Spaces”. Dorner choreographs a talented group of parkour artists and dancers into small nooks and areas of the urban jungle we pass by everyday and creates a new colourful perspective. He brings an alternative view to the city experience; a temporary intervention of public space.

“I use the different positions of the bodies to direct [people’s] gaze and thus point out it’s interesting features, to break through the normal radius of eye movement, and the walkers imperceptibly adopt the perspective of tourists.” – Willi Dorner

“I focused on the intermediate spaces; I sought out places that are often ignored and left open, and I extended the idea to trails that pass through urban areas but which are not familiar to most inhabitants.”- Dorner

Upgraded Tuesdays || Willdabeast

So it’s Tuesday… The Mon-daze has past, and it’s not quite Humpday or Friday…. So I decided to upgrade Tuesdays by posting a fierce dance video every week.

First one up of this series is a combo choreographed by Willdabeast Adams (LA) to the song “Upgrade U” by Beyoncé (fitting isn’t?).

Just. Watch. Honestly, if you don’t’ feel hype after watching this, then I don’t know if you’re human or not…

Everything about his choreo is right. And the dancers in this video all KILL. IT. Enjoy :)

P.S. Willdabeast, you have my heart. <3
