Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet Costume Design

Strange Flowers

Berlin’s Akademie der Künste, currently hosting an exhibition of Gisèle Freund‘s portrait photography, this weekend reaches even further back into Germany’s 20th century avant-garde history with their revival of Das triadsiche Ballett (“The Triadic Ballet”). A dance piece conceived in 1922 by Oskar Schlemmer to music by Paul Hindemith, it represented an attempt to merge bodies in motion with the geometric aesthetic of Bauhaus, of which Schlemmer was a member. The first five images, Schlemmer’s original costume designs, are followed by early performance stills.
