Mechanical Ballet

// Stage Play
Thu, 24 Aug 2023, 6 + 8 p.m.
Bauhaus Building, Auditorium
>> Ticket required

"One should be as unprejudiced as possible; one should act as if the world had just been created; one should not analyze a thing to death, but rather let it unfold gradually and without interference." These words by Bauhaus master Oskar Schlemmer sound like the artistic credo of composer and director Jörg Lensing, who founded the Theater der Klänge. At the Bauhaus Dessau, the collective focuses on the ideas of mechanical ballet, a "stage organisation with simple forms" (Kurt Schmidt) of movement, sound and light design.

Between the two performances, the mask and costume workshop offers the opportunity to create individual masks and costumes that bring the Bauhaus into the present – as a personal contribution to the Bauhaus Festival on 1 and 2 September 2023.
