The first part of this paper explores the work of Oskar Schlemmer, who as the director of stage workshop at the Bauhaus School in Dessau from 1923-1929, generated work on dance, costume, and architecture as material and spatial explorations that influenced subsequent dance and theater artists focused on the relationship of materials to moving bodies. In order to begin to address a contemporary framing for this work, the second part of this paper considers "haptic play" in the city as stage. There are many current examples of performance and digital works from Stephan Klopowitz's "Grand Step Project" to Tomás Saraceno's "Moving Beyond Materiality" that "take to the streets" and create forms of body-materialarchitecture extensions that temporarily transform our experience of the built and natural landscape.
