Bauhaus Dances Presented by Debra McCall

Bauhaus Dances, 1986 presented by Debra McCall
Sunday, February 7, 4pm, Otis Forum, Free
Performing the Grid artist Debra McCall screens the 1986 film of her reconstructions of Oskar Schlemmer's 1920s Bauhaus Dances in their entirety and describes her process of rediscovering the original notes and sketches, visiting the Bauhaus in East Germany and reconstructing the pieces with the help of Ise Gropius and Andreas Weininger, the last remaining performer from the original Bauhaus Stage Workshop. Hailed by the New York Times as a “tour de force” of research and performance and as “prophetic,” the dances premiered at The Kitchen in New York in 1982 and The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum in conjunction with a Kandinsky exhibition in 1984. After sold-out tours of the US, Europe and Japan, McCall's reconstructions returned to the original Dessau Bauhaus in 1994, presenting the dances on that stage for the first time in sixty-five years.
