The Creation of Art as Collaboration
The Potsdamer Tanztage are one of the outstanding international dance festivals in Germany. With “Dancing Future. 100 Years BAUHAUS” it explores the Bauhaus’ influence on modern dance and the performative arts of our time from 14th to 26th May. We spoke to the choreographers Lia Rodrigues and Anne Collod about their works, which they will be presenting in Brandenburg: two interviews, two positions.

artnet magazine recently voted her the “world’s most active performance curator.” One of her accomplishments is most definitely the founding of the New York Performa Institute, an exceptional undertaking.

Body, emotion and originality on the early Bauhaus stage: Lothar Schreyer and Gertrud Grunow
The name Oskar Schlemmer is particularly closely associated with the Bauhaus stage. His predecessor Lothar Schreyer is, however, hardly known. Schreyer’s stage work and concept were significantly influenced by the Bauhaus teacher Gertrud Grunow. New research findings on Gertrud Grunow make for a better understanding of these connections.
Kick-off in Berlin
From 16. until 24. January 2019 the opening festival for 100 years of Bauhaus will be held at the Akademie der Künste in Berlin to mark the beginning of nationwide festivities celebrating the centenary of the founding of the Bauhaus.
“My association with the Bauhaus stage has been on-going for a long time and is very emphatic.”
In her position as art director Bettina Wagner–Bergelt is responsible for the Opening Festival of 100 years of bauhaus. The festival launches in January 2019 the Bauhaus Centenary in Berlin. Wagner–Bergelt was already enganged in the subject of the Bauhaus stage long before her involvement in the event.
