Stäbetanz

Stäbetanz

Stäbetanz

(Stick dance)

Between 1926 and 1929, the Dessau Bauhaus presented works of an experimental nature that Oskar Schlemmer designed in collaboration with young artists who came to study in this school. At the end of the First World War, the European avant-garde movements were fascinated by the utopias of “the new man”, soon to be systematically undermined by the rise of European fascist regimes and Nazism. Between these two disastrous events, Oskar Schlemmer was one of those who relentlessly questioned the aporias, the contradictions but also the potentialities of which the name of art condenses the promise. A tireless inventor, he constantly dialogued and debated with the art of his time. Alongside his teachings, writings and research into the fields of drawing, painting and sculpture, his work intended for the stage placed at the heart of his project the relationships of body and gesture in their relations to the space and time of history. His Stäbetanz, a temporal activation of a constructivist sculpture, chants the invention of choreographic abstraction.

Wavelet, Christophe

Art critic and curator, Christophe Wavelet co-directed the activities of  the Quatuor Knust project (1993-2001), sat on the editorial boards of  the journals Vacarme and Mouvement, watched over the activities of the international research pole at the National Center of Dance, then directed the LiFE- International Place of Emerging Forms (2005-2010), institution dedicated to the production and diffusion of contemporary scenes of art. His articles and essays are published in numerous magazines and occasionally in exhibition catalogs. Prioritizing discursive projects from different cultural areas, in 2012 and 2013 he  was the laureate of the Akademie Schloss Solitude, and worked on an essay and the French translation of Writings of the Brazilian artist Helio Oiticica.

Schlemmer, Oskar

Oskar Schlemmer (Stuttgart, September 4th 1888 - Baden-Baden April 13th 1943) was a German painter, sculptor, man of the theatre and choreographer. He was one of the most innovative creators of the Bauhaus. He imagined a "mathematics of dance". One of his best known works is Triadisches Ballett.
