“Bauhaus tanzt II”

Premiere: 30 July 2018 at Brick-5, Vienna

Bauhaus tanzt II is a project that continues the research started in the work Bauhaus tanzt, it is a new piece which exists as an independent creation as well as the continuation of Bauhaus tanzt. Woking on a same topic, we deepened our research and explored the limits of Oscar Sclemmer’s concept as well as its correlation with John Cage music. The understanding of the initial sources (Triadic ballet and Sonatas and Interludes for prepared piano) was broaden by studying the other creations of Bauhaus theatre such as Pole dance and Gesture dance in addition to John Cage’s score Four4.
