Alison J Carr: Bauhaus Bühnenchor

Sun 25 Nov, 7.30pm / DINA

Bauhaus Bühnenchor is a live performance that experiments with the all-girl kickline. Using the kickline as a form with the potential to represent women’s collective and creative force, Bauhaus Bühnenchor imagines the experiences of Bauhaus female art students and chorus girls in Weimar, as well considering the context of dancing in a troupe today. The performance is a collaboration between artist Alison J Carr and Lucy Haighton, a movement artist and choreographer based in Sheffield.


PLEASE NOTE: The venue for this performance is DINA, 32 Cambridge St, Sheffield S1 4HP

Talk: Ian Whittlesea on Johannes Itten

Sat 8 Dec, 2pm / S1 Artspace

Join artist Ian Whittlesea for an introduction to Bauhaus Master Johannes Itten’s breathing and meditation exercises. Ian will explore the influence of the Mazdaznan spiritual movement on Itten’s preliminary course at the Bauhaus, followed by a participatory demonstration with Sheffield-based yoga teacher Nicola Harpin. Yoga blocks will be provided.

Ian Whittlesea is an artist whose work is concerned with words, and with the ability of text to transform the physical and psychic state of the viewer. In 2012 he collaborated with Foundation students at Kingston University to revive the Mazdaznan breathing and stretching exercises that Johannes Itten taught at the Bauhaus.

Nicola Harpin is an Ashtanga yoga teacher and founder of Yoga at the Reach, Sheffield.
