The 100th anniversary of Bauhaus
Bauhaus design - Butoh dance - Music
In the exceptional setting of the Villa Empain, the opening night pays tribute to Bauhaus for the one hundredth anniversary of the movement born in Weimar. Il Corpo Dentro is a show created by three artists: Sonia Biacchi (costume designer), Atsushi Takenouchi (choreographer and Butoh dancer) and Hiroko Komiya (musician), who engage in different aesthetic approaches yet possess similar philosophies. This show provides a unique opportunity to turn our gaze in a new direction, attempting to get closer to the absolute by detaching itself from the daily spatial-temporal dimensions. The original costumes in Bauhaus style, on loan from the Venice Theatrical Research Center, are inspired by the three-part ballet of Oskar Schlemmer and the staging by dancer Atsushi Takenouchi, highlights the forms of the space building a true architecture of the body.
