Bodies in Urban Spaces (Cie. Willi Dorner)

Experience the worldwide sensation Bodies in Urban Spaces in Dublin city centre! A unique celebration of our urban environment, see the city from a fresh perspective as you follow this intriguing, moving trail through some of Dublin’s best known streets and public spaces.

20 locally recruited performers create a chain of colourful and unexpected installations along a specially chosen route through the city. Live body sculptures are set up quickly and exist fleetingly before the acrobatic performers disengage themselves and move on.

Discover new and imaginative possibilities of well known spaces and architecture while marvelling at the daring display of physical strength and skill - on the run!

A moving trail through Dublin city centre, starting at the corner of The Lir on Pearse Street and Grand Canal Quay.
