100 years of bauhaus

About

The Bauhaus looked for new artistic forms of expression for people in modern industrial societies. Among them was Oskar Schlemmer’s stage experiments as well as Walter Gropius’s “Totales Theater” project. To commemorate the 100th birthday of the Bauhaus, “Das Totale Tanz Theater” has revitalized these ideas for the digital age. The installation, which was conceived and realized under the leadership of the Interactive Media Foundation, transfers visitors to a 400-meter-high virtual reality dome. On this virtual stage they meet dance machines that wear futuristic versions of Schlemmer’s costumes. At first, the visitors can control the movements in the space. But then the system takes over the choreography. A sensual dance experience – and at the same time a highly topical reflection on the relationship between man and machine.
