How does the perfekt man look like? Images of the female body in advertising are commonly known – but what about the representation of the male body? What strategies of staging are applied for men?

In views in process Doris Stelzer is analysing the commercial exploitation of the male body and the recent trends of representation in the media in order to transform it into concentrated movement-statements. Popular clichés and stereotypes are questioned in regard to the own and the other biological sex and in regard to their social construction. Reflections on the patterns of perception and a delicate handling of deviations from the body norm are postulated.

An evening with little dancing and a lot of movement. “view in process” changes the viewing habits in two ways: the choreography allows a sensitive look at the details of our bodies and a new view on society’s well established body images. Provided that one is willing to open his eyes. (, Dezember 2008)
views in process was developed and premiered during the residency at K3 – Centre for Choreography | Tanzplan Hamburg at Kampnagel Hamburg. views in process is the pendant to shifted views, the performance with the blue shoe, premiered at the ImPulsTanz-festival in 2007.

I think, I have to change my style.
I think so, too.
