Description - The Theatre of the Bauhaus by Melissa Trimingham
This book gives the history of the Bauhaus's "theatre of space," focusing on the experimental stage work at Dessau between 1925 and 1929. This is used to explain the earlier stage work at Weimar and Schlemmer's extensive oeuvre connected with the Bauhaus, particularly The Triadic Ballet. The idea of "theatre of space" is used to highlight twentieth-century practitioners who privilege the visual, aural, and plastic qualities of the stage above character, narrative and, themes (for example Schlemmer himself, Robert Wilson, Tadeusz Kantor, Robert Lepage, Pina Bausch). This impressive volume will be of use to students and academics involved in the areas of twentieth-century performance, the history of performance art,athe history of avant-garde theatre, modern German theatre,aand Weimar-era performance.
