100 Years of Bauhaus Das Totale Tanz Theater 360°


The whole theatre should be a stage! Das Totale Tanz Theater makes the Bauhaus dream of "total theatre" a reality in this anniversary year, lets body and space blend together and brings Walter Gropius' and Oskar Schlemmer's stage experiment into the digital age using virtual reality. The question about the relationship between man and machine, which had already been asked by Bauhaus, and how it can be experienced interactively in the extensive virtual reality dance experience Das Totale Tanz Theater, now becomes a three-dimensional audio and visual experience: A dance video with choreography by Richard Siegal and music by the band Einstürzende Neubauten, which will be also available in the ARTE 360° app from 17th January.

Choreography Richard Siegal
Music „Si Takka Lumi" by Einstürzenden Neubauten*
Director Maya Puig
Executive Producer Diana Schniedermeier
Commissioning Editors ZDF/ARTE Kathrin Brinkmann, Sabine Bubeck-Paaz

A project of Interactive Media Foundation in cooperation with ZDF/ARTE, within the framework of the Filmtank project Bauhaus Spirit. The Video is based on the VR Experience Das Totale Tanz Theater, which has been supported by the Fonds Bauhaus heute of Kulturstiftung des Bundes and Medienboard Berlin Brandenburg.
