Focusing on the work of painter, choreographer and scenic designer Oskar Schlemmer, the ‘Master Magician’ and leader of the Theatre Workshop, this book explains this ‘theatre of high modernism’ and its his-torical role in design and performance studies; further, it connects the Bauhaus exploration of space with contemporary stages and contemporary ethics, aesthetics and society. In demonstrating the Bauhaus stage work to be an evolving and embodied experience, central to Bauhaus Modernism, the writer offers a new interpretation of the institution as a whole, in terms of a ‘post’ modern fissure in the Bauhaus master plan, a fissure that be-gins on its stage. Selected Contents: 1: The Theatre of the Bauhaus 2: Modernism 3: Space: Light and Scenery 4: Body and Motion 5: Body and Objects 6: Sound 7: Time 8: Afterword Notes This volume will be of use to students and academics involved in the areas of twentieth-century performance, the history of performance art, the history of avant-garde theatre, modern German theatre, and Weimar-era performance
