Das Totale Tanz Theater

"The whole theatre should be a stage!" Bauhaus artists dreamed of a theatre that would liberate its audiences from their passivity and place them at the centre of the action in an imaginary world.

A special collaboration between virtual reality pioneers, the acclaimed choreographer Richard Siegal and the cult band Einstürzende Neubauten made the bauhaus dream of “total theatre” a reality in this anniversary year. Fusing body and space together, they transplant Walter Gropius’s and Oskar Schlemmer’s experiments in stagecraft into the digital age.

The relationship between man and machine that the bauhaus was already exploring even a hundred years ago here becomes a three-dimensional audiovisual experience in an immersive dance video that can be viewed on the ARTE 360° app since the 17th January, and that has been shown for the first time at the 100 years Bauhaus festival at the Berlin Akademie der Künste.
