10 am – 11 am Women at the Bauhaus – Tour

Tour through our gallery exhibition “Women at the Bauhaus” presenting some 60 women students and instructors of the Bauhaus in photos, followed by a drink of your choice – our treat!

Free admission. Limited number of participants.

11 am – 3:30 pm bauhaus_lab

For those who love to “pull the strings” and set geometrical shapes in motion, this bauhaus_lab is sure to satisfy. Inspired by the puppet theatre created by Bauhaus students, visitors young and old can assemble their own cardboard marionettes.

4 pm – 5 pm “The Adventures of the Little Hunchback” Puppet theatre

Oskar Schlemmer worked with students in the theatre workshop at the Bauhaus Weimar to stage a puppet theatre performance of the fairy tale “The Adventures of the Little Hunchback”. Although they constructed the marionettes, the play was never performed. Director and puppeteer Christian Fuchs has restaged the play with replicas of the original marionettes.
