"Scenography Now!"  and the bauhaus lab 2009 present in the frame of the
Bauhaus Year 2009 the contemporary scenography festival:


from May 1st - 17th 2009, Theaterhaus Jena / Germany.
- a festival for the scenographical arts

in co-operation with the AA in London, the C3 in Budapest and the Stage
Studio of the Bauhaus Dessau Foundation

New! New! New! Crash! Boom! Bau!
At the Bauhaus, ?New? was the word of the hour. One wanted to change the
world to the better, with all perfection: new cities, new tea pots, new
man, and certainly also: a new theatre!

The stage workshop at the Bauhaus was an unique laboratory of the
performative. With great complexity, Bauhaus-master L?szl? Moholy-Nagy
described, what it was all about: ?The sensible demand for today is: a
true organization of form and motion that is deemed equally important
and on the same plane with the acoustic and optic (electric) phenomena
we can currently produce, not one abusing motion as a medium for
literary and emotional events.?
Quite complicated, but: new!

One experimented with space, with apparatuses, with machines, and
mechanisms. Walter Gropius: ?Every art wants to shape space!? Oskar
Schlemmer presented a ?Figural Cabinet?, Kurt Schmidt a ?Mechanic
Ballet?, and Moholy-Nagy a ?Light-Space-Modulator? - for the first time
in 1923 as a ?Mechanic Cabaret? at the theatre in Jena.

The Crash! Boom! Bau! Festival celebrates 90 years of the Bauhaus with a
new and up-to-date theatre, guest performances and own productions, with
artistic installations and workshops. All projects focus on the a
special way of dealing with space, with the stage, with the relation
between action and perception, and with interdisciplinary approaches
between stage design, media art, and architecture. The festival as a

And: we expand! In collaboration with the Architectural Association
London, a temporary structure is created on the public square in front
of the theatre building - a new place for play and encounter, to expand
our theater. This addendum calls: come on in, here is something new!

New! New! New! Crash! Boom! Bau!

The festival Crash!Boom!Bau! is funded in context of the project
"Scenography Now!" by the German Cultural Foundation and in the context
of the project "bauhaus lab" by the EU culture program.

 From Tesla To Correa's - micro functionalists thoughts on a (nearly)  
lost century by Olivier Meunier @ OKNO

29/3 20h OKNO-inside

Lecture and presentation

In 1884 Nikolas Tesla arrived in the USA and started a work that  
uncovered principles still not well understood mainly in the domains  
of electricity, electromagnetics and energies.

One century later began the work of Paolo and Alexandra Correa, in  
Canada Toronto's area. Building on Tesla's legacy (among others) they  
bring a completely new model for the universe that put the concept of  
Aether back in an interesting and dynamic way.

They patented inventions that produce energy from that very Aether as  
well as researching other principles of nature touching biology,  
chemistry, atomic physics as well as gravity, challenging the actual  
dogmas of relativity as well as other branches of the "royal science".

The amount of writings and publications is serious, and we'll try  
during an evening to present some parts of their thoughts and works,  
touching physics but also philosophy, art, biology, politics, and  
internet age criticism, inspired also by the works of G.Deleuze and  
F.Guattari, W. Reich, G. Debord, Nietsches, Spinoza, ... (ref : 


Lezing en presentatie door Adrien Lucca en Olivier Meunier

In 1884 kwam Nikola Tesla aan in de USA en begon te werken aan idee?n  
die nog steeds niet goed begrepen worden in elektriciteit,  
elektromagnetisme en energie?n. Een eeuw later vangt het werk van  
Paolo en Alexandra Correa aan. Ze bouwden verder aan de nalatenschap  
van Tesla en anderen om een nieuw model te concipi?ren voor het  
universum, een model waarin het concept Aether terugkomt op een  
interessante en dynamische manier. We proberen een aantal punten  
hiervan bloot te leggen en raken daarmee aan andere velden als  
filosofie, kunst, biologie, politiek...

recherche qui va r?v?ler des principes encore biens incompris

Canada. Construisant sur l'h?ritage de Tesla (entre autre) ils  
amm?nent un mod?le compl?tement nouveau de l'univers, qui remet le  
concept d'Aether en avant d'une mani?re dynamique et originale. Ils  
ont brevet? des inventions qui produisent de l'?nergie ? partir de cet  
Aether, et font des recherches sur des principes naturels touchant la  
biologie, la chimie, la physique atomique ou la gravit?, d?fiant les  
dogmes actuels de la "relativit?" ou d'autres branches de la "science  
royale". La quantit? et la profondeur de leurs ?crits est s?rieuse, et
