Fließtext "100 Years Bauhaus. The opening festival."
Oriented on Bauhauswoche 1923 (Bauhaus Week 1923) and the legendary Bauhaus Festivals, a creative atmosphere of experimentation and research, learning and teaching, joining in and thinking ahead will be ensured. Art and technology, light, colour, sound and movement and the relationship between humankind and machine will play a key role in the programme. In the “Das totale Tanztheater” (Total Dance Theatre) virtual reality installation, for example, in cooperation with Filmtank and Artificial Rome, choreographer Richard Siegal allows the audience and the action on stage to blend with one another.
Federal President Frank-Walter Steinmeier is the patron of the opening festival, and will officially open the event on 16 January 2019.
Detailed insights will be provided in the full programme at the end of October 2018, when advance ticket sales will also commence.
