Bauhause Ballet


Charles Stuart


Photograph - Photograph


Schlemmer (1888-1943), a German artist associated with the influential art school known as the Bauhaus, turned to choreography because of his concern for the relationships of figures in space. Some of his Bauhaus dances have recently been reconstructed in New York by Debra McCall, a dance historian. But the 75-minute ''Triadic Ballet'' is the most elaborate work by Schlemmer ever to be staged here.

His costumes, emphasizing such shapes as cones, tubes, hoops and spheres, have been lovingly restored by Ulrike Dietrich. And what astonishing costumes they are! One woman wears a bubble. A man appears to be a marionette without strings. Another man seems to have a snowbank attached to him. The heads of two others peer out from enormous golden balls.

Unfortunately, Schlemmer's choreography for these figures was forgotten long ago and any new production must be based upon research and intuition. The present version, by the West German choreographer Gerhard Bohner, dates from 1977. At least two other attempts to reconstruct parts of the work have also been made in the past 20 years.

Although Schlemmer conceived of his piece in terms of threes as a ballet in three scenes for three dancers in a multitude of costumes, this version employs five dancers (Colleen Scott, Gislinde Skroblin, Peter Jolesch, Ivan Liska and Mr. Bohner). Yet Mr. Bohner remains faithful to Schlemmer by never having more than three people on stage at once.

Some photographs from the 20's show dancers on point in productions of ''The Triadic Ballet,'' and the women's costumes are variants upon traditional tutus - only these tutus also recall saucers and seashells. Perhaps because of Schlemmer's balletic references, Mr. Bohner's reconstruction is essentially balletic in its technical vocabulary.
