The Triadic Ballet by Oskar Schlemmer is one of the most unusual stage works of the 20th century. The documentation for the work describes the development of the costumes from the premiere in 1922 to the reconstruction by dancer and choreographer Gerhard Bohner in 1977, to their appearance within present-day triadic space. One hundred years of history that led to extraordinary success, despite the historical obstacles.
