From the structural affinity of the two arts he derived the necessity for the installation of a Bauhaus stage. Here, the elementary elements of "stage design" were to be examined and reformulated. Oskar Schlemmer, who headed the stage workshop from 1923 to 1929, stood at the centre of the Bauhaus stage. With his Triadic Ballet and the Bauhaus Dances, he explored the field of tension between man and space in an abstract and geometric play with form, colour, sound, movement and light, and thus the fundamental conditions of theatrical design.||german||german|
