dc.description.abstractOne can best glean painter Wassily Kandinsky’s contribution to ideas about dance by looking at the totality of his writings. Kandinsky conceptualized dance as part of his theories for a new abstract art in his major book Concerning the Spiritual in Art. I consider his 1912 statement on the dance of the future as a modernist statement in its time. Kandinsky’s idea for a new form of theater, Bühnenkomposition, incorporated dance, as his script for The Yellow Sound demonstrates. His later writings in Moscow and at the Bauhaus in Weimar and Dessau reveal his concern for what the modern dance might achieve. In 1928, Kandinsky finally realized his ambition to stage a new form of synthetic theater in a production of Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.en
