play bauhaus - dance it!

The exhibition “Play Bauhaus” is curated by Torsten Blume from the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation and commissioned by Taipei Arts Festival. It falls back on Bauhaus Theatre’s history with images and text, models and videos. On show are videos of the most important reconstruction and reinterpretation projects inspired by Oskar Schlemmer’s dances. The exhibition also shows the vitality that the Bauhaus Theatre still enjoys at Dessau Bauhaus today in pedagogical and performance projects.

Different constellations using a transportable Bauhaus Stage Studio Satellite entirely in the spirit of the historic Raumtänze – Space Dances – of the old Bauhaus Theatre give dynamism to the space with the body to become the performance itself. This will be illustrated in lecture demonstrations during the Taipei Arts Festival.
