East London Dance and Chobham Manor Our Living Art are working with internationally renowned Austrian choreographer, Willi Dorner and photographer Lisa Rastl on Stratford Living, a unique photographic dance project to be created and exhibited in various homes in Stratford.
We are looking for local residents who are keen to open their doors to this project in order to turn their home into a work of art.
Stratford Living is a participatory project involving human sculpture and photography in which individual private homes become exhibition spaces, providing a profound insight into the living conditions and history of the area.
Dancers will form human sculptures in houses or apartments around Stratford and be photographed in situ between 13 - 18 June, 2017. These photographs will subsequently be used to create an exhibition within the same houses or apartments as part of a walking tour around Stratford, on 26 and 27 August, 2017.
“Living in urban spaces is our future. Our cities will get crowded in the next decades and we urgently need to discuss how we can live together” Willi Dorner
