Walter Gropius considered a dramatic work for the stage to be an interplay of various disciplines creating an “orchestral unity”, similar to architecture. Due to the structural kinship of both arts, he saw the need for establishing a Bauhaus stage. Here, the basic elements of “stage design” were to be examined and reformulated. At the centre of the Bauhaus stage was Oskar Schlemmer, who directed the theatre workshop from 1923 to 1929. With his Triadic Ballet and the Bauhaus Dances, he examined the dynamics between figure and space in the abstract and geometric interplay of form, colour, sound, movement and light, and thus also the basic conditions of theatrical design.
