Physical training depicted as a strange kind of existential ballet: In "excursus on fitness" Josef Dabernig shows a group of people performing gymnastics at a ballroom in Vienna's third district. The location is quite shabby and the mood is thoroughly joyless, and the silence of the black and white images amplifies this atmosphere. All the participants are absorbed in their wordless, uniform activity - solitude reigns in the crowd.
