...is it a film or a play?


Very Bauhaus is an Expanded Cinema Theatrical Dance piece, inspired by The Triadic Ballet by Oskar Schlemmer of the School of Bauhaus. Very Bauhaus experiments with 16mm film intertwined with dance, abstract costumes & mimes. That of which a mime can only express through their face, a shape can only express through movement. The idea is to express emotion into it’s purest forms, without dialogue. The Expanded Cinema element of this performance is a first-time attempt at a triple-projection shot on a Bolex, edited on a Steenbeck and projected on 16mm film. Event photography by Alyss Black.
