Austrian choreographer Willi Dorner, best known for his internationally acclaimed Bodies in Urban Spaces (DU2009), was invited by East London Dance to create a photographic exhibition Stratford Living. Working with a number of dancers across a variety of homes and spaces in Stratford, the photos, taken by Lisa Rastl, offered an insightful glimpse into the changing living environments of East London.

The photos were exhibited at the Stage Door Café at Sadler’s Wells during the 2017 festival.

Stratford Living by Willi Dorner, commissioned and produced by East London Dance in association with Sarah Trist Dance Management Agency.

The programme is commissioned by London Legacy Development Corporation and is funded by Chobham Manor LLP, a joint venture between L&Q and Taylor Whimpey.
