The choreographers of the company Taiat Dansa, Meritxell Barberá & Inma García, face in this new work the desire to explore the possibilities and the visual, aesthetic, spatial and performative revolution of Oskar Schlemmer’s Triadic Ballet. The main idea is to propose a new contemporary vision of this emblematic piece for the history of art, which, precisely, was crucial for the visual arts, but it had little influence on the history of dance, choreography and the arts of movement.
The term ‘triadic’ is related to the number three, the most important and dominant according to Oscar Schlemmer, who defended that in this issue the collective begins, after overcoming the Ego and dualism. At this point, the choreographers of Taiat Dansa in cooperation with the Brazilian choreographer, Ismael Ivo, and de French choreografer Rachid Ouramdane will work together in a piece directed by Taiat Dansa but choreographed by the three creators, where each one will be in charge of a choreographic sequence to compose the three parts of this ballet.
Three dancers, three choreographers and three stage sequences. Form, colour and space. The three dimensions of space: height, width and depth. The basic forms: sphere, cube and pyramid. The three colours of the original piece from Schlemmer: yellow, pink, black. Dance, costumes and music. All these will be the ingredients that will count THREE of Triadic Ballet from Taiat Dansa.
The piece, like the original, have a duration of 30′ that could be seen in 3 diferent passes everyday, accesing into the sphere that the company have designed to this recreation of the Triadic Ballet in groups of 30.
