About this Event

Enjoy a custom performance of the Bauhaus-inspired ballet Futura Fractals by ID students and Hedwig Dance a week after they appear at Dessau. ID student Audrey Gordon explains how the process of abstraction in dance is germane to the work of design, in which one must "constantly consider how stakeholders and systems interact." See a video and learn more about this project. Followed by a reception with beer, wine, and snacks.

Part of Bauhaus Live, a day-long celebration of Chicago's Bauhaus heritage, and Shapeshift 2019: Design @ Illinois Tech, presented by IIT Institute of Design and IIT College of Architecture. On the occasion of the Bauhaus centenary, the inaugural Shapeshift celebrates Bauhaus in Chicago. From September 16–28, 2019, we will explore our Bauhaus heritage, address our city’s key challenges, and host conversations about how we can build equitable and sustainable long-term solutions. Acknowledging Chicago’s and Illinois Tech’s leading roles in the development of 20th century modernism, Shapeshift celebrates Chicago and Illinois Tech as partners in reimagining the urban environment for the 21st century.
