The "Ensemble for Intuitive Music Weimar" produced since 1986 synaesthetic concepts that address traditional ideas of the Bauhaus era. The starting point for these imaginary encounters was the collaboration between Kurt Schmidt and Hans Heinz Stuckenschmidt. In 1923 during the Bauhaus theater week in Jena, their "Mechanical Ballet" was premiered. Contrasting geometrical figurines were controlled by hidden dancers movements, resulting in a vibrant, changing, abstract painting.
The Bauhaus master Laszlo Moholy-Nagy searched in the mid-20th for a synthesis of form, movement, sound, light and color. He tried connecting links between these elements to create new artistic expressions.
POLYVISION uses the technical possibilities of our time to merge music, multidimensional projection and expressive dance.
Mysterious visual structures between microcosm and macrocosm were created by Hans Tutschku, and build the framework for dance and music improvisation.
The white-dressed dancer is at times dissolving into the color structures.
