Bauhaus Tanzt


Bauhaus Tanzt is an experimental reflection on the Triadic ballet created in 1922. In our approach we relate to the method that Oscar Schlemmer suggested himself: a practical study of artist’s theory towards the historical context on stage. Most of the Schlemmer’s performative works are based on very simple and classical steps and techniques. What challenges aesthetics is the context in which the dance is being presented. We neglect the traditional approach to Schlemmer’s work that presents a dancer as a tool for bringing a costume alive and we believe that the body is a central medium in artist’s work.
