Triadisches Ballett (Triadic Ballet) was developed by Oskar Schlemmer. It premiered in Stuttgart, on 30 September 1922, with music composed by Paul Hindemith (following formative performances dating back to 1916). This ballet became the most widely performed avant-garde dance between 1921 and 1929. The dance troupe's touring years coincided with Schlemmer's tenure at the Bauhaus, and helped to spread its ethos.
