More About This Title Dance the Bauhaus


The Bauhaus in Dessau, Germany is known worldwide as an avant-garde Workshop school for architecture, art and design. Less well known is the fact that the school also had a tradition of dance, where a focus was placed on the question of form and space. Characterized with names like Form Dance, Glass Dance, Metall Dance, Stick Dance and Space Dance, the experimental dances were especially performed during Bauhaus festivals, while the Bauhaus band played a mix of Jazz and traditional German folk music.


Thorsten Blume, born in 1964, is a researcher at the Bauhaus Dessau foundation and responsible for experimental projects on the historic Bauhaus-stage. He is also joint editor of the publication series "Edition Bauhaus" with E.A. Seemann, Leipzig.
