The historically important Das Triadische Ballett by Oskar Schlemmer (1888-1943) premiered in 1922. During Schlemmer's tenure at the Bauhaus, 1921-1929, the ballet became a symbol of the new school's ethos.
If today's arts love the machine, technology and organization, if they aspire to precision and reject anything vague and dreamy, this implies an instinctive repudiation of chaos and a longing to find the form appropriate to our times. - Oskar Schlemmer
