Teacher for Immersive Media, Bauhaus-Universität Weimar
The idea to bring the Bauhaus into a circus tent and stage it in a 360° space was explored during the Bauhaus.Semester 2018/19, initiated by the director of the Bauhaus-Univeristät Weimar. The project was guided by Prof. Dr. Tiago de Oliveira Pinto (HfM, UNESCO »Transcultural Music Studies«) and Prof. Micky Remann (Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, »Immersive Media«) as well as the contract-teacher Liese Endler (Media artist Bauhaus-Universität Weimar) and asked students from both universities to tell the story of the fictitious »Cirque du Bauhaus« with visual and auditive episodes. To make proper use of the possibilities within an immersive music theater, the boundaries between real Bauhaus-references and their free interpretation were set freely. Under the dome of the »Cirque du Bauhaus«, virtual figures will meet real ones, historic references clash with futuristic visions, dreams, nightmares and orchestral music to form a Gesamtkunstwerk in 360 degrees.
