“Das Totale Tanz Theater is a captivating illusion machine – spectacular as an experience, as a work of art, as a continuation and extension of the Bauhaus idea into the 21st century."

ARTE

“Walter Gropius and Oskar Schlemmer would surely have been thrilled.”

DER TAGESSPIEGEL

“Wel, het ís een wonderlijke en ook wat intimiderende ervaring.”

100 Years of Bauhaus – The laboratory of modernism

Founded 100 years ago in Weimar, the Bauhaus’s influence on architecture, art, design and educational science can still be felt today. 100 years ago, the question of people’s role in the mechanical age was tackled on the Bauhaus stage in both artistic and experimental terms.

Das Totale Tanz Theater

has taken up the theme, exploring the question of the role of people in the digital age in the form of a virtual reality dance experience, inspired by the stage experiments of Oskar Schlemmer and Walter Gropius, with choreography by Richard Siegal.

A dance addressing the question: Who controls who?

The interplay between dance, music and sound design, costume design and scenography with algorithms and digital technology brings the story to life across three levels: Together with a "Tanzmaschine", users pass through a dance choreography, always accompanied by the question of the extent of the scope of their influence on the surrounding space and the machine.

Installation & 360°

MULTI-USER INSTALLATION

Four people simultaneously immerse themselves into the world of Das Totale Tanz Theater, always with sight of the other respective users and of their virtual stage platforms and dance performances.They are enclosed by a semi-transparent gauze ring, upon which projections of the dance machines connect the happenings in the virtual world with the real world.

SINGLE-USER EXPERIENCE

The single-user experience conveys the interactive experience – scalable and flexible in terms of space. In this case too, projections link the virtual world to the real world.

360º Music Video

Music by Einstürzende Neubauten and with choreography by Richard Siegal, embedded into Das Totale Tanz Theater’s stage world.

Bauhaus Spirit - Das Totale Tanz Theater is part of the crossmedia project BAUHAUS SPIRIT, which transports the Bauhaus’s ideas and approach into the present and future: www.bauhaus-spirit.com.

THE MAKING-OF

Phenomenal stage construction, costumes whose sheer beauty unfolds as they move, constantly evolving choreography over three levels, and music and sound design which underscore the story’s dramaturgy. The ‘making of’ offers insights into how Das Totale Tanz Theater was created.

INSZENIERUNG 
IM RAUM

Das Totale Tanz Theater feiert Premiere im Rahmen des offiziellen Eröffnungsfestivals des Bauhausjahres in der Akademie der Künste Berlin am Hanseatenweg. Ein mit semi-transparenter Gaze bespannter Ring von 6 Metern Durchmesser umschließt die vier Nutzer der Multiuser-Installation. Projektionen der Tanzmaschinen aus dem Inneren von Das Totale Tanz Theater verbinden die virtuelle mit der realen Welt und machen die Tanzmaschinen auch für außenstehende Zuschauer zugänglich. Eine Projektion, die die Tanzmaschinen „behind the scenes“ zeigt, stimmt die Besucher ein und führt sie zur Installation.

HOW IT IS STAGED

Das Totale Tanz Theater debuts as part of the official opening festival commemorating the Bauhaus’s anniversary, held at the Academy of Arts Berlin, Hanseatenweg. A 6m-diameter ring covered with semi-transparent gauze encloses the four users in the multi-user installation. Projections of the dance machines from inside Das Totale Tanz Theater connect the virtual world to the real world, making the dance machines accessible to the spectators outside the ring.
A projection that shows the dance machines ‘behind the scenes’ gets the visitors in the mood, and leads them to the installation.
