    Stick dance mixed realities is a hybrid movie where is edited a video and a machinima of a reconstitution in Real life and Second Life of the STICK DANCE by Oskar Schlemmer, a teacher and artistic director of the Bauhaus. This hybrid movie exercise propose a reflection about the frontiers between realities where we avatars are living on XXI century.Bauhaus - German avantgarde school of designers, art and architecture , one of the largest and most important expressions of what we call "modernism." Oskar Schlemmer was an accomplished sculptor, painter, set designer, costume designer, choreographer and dance producer with a recognized artistic reputation. When he was invited by the Bauhaus he developed a series of dances at the theater workshop including the STICK DANCE and Triadic Ballet. In this challenging exercise of abstraction, he developed new poetic forms to animate the performing arts. The project to rebuild the STICK DANCE was a contribution to a broader research project of Professor Ernesto Boccara to reconstitute the Triadic Ballet at the Centro Universitario SENAC, São Paulo, Brazil. The art teacher, dancer and designer Isa Seppi, in partnership with Prof. Lucio Agra, conducted the opening performance of sticks for a real-life ballet performance in 2008. It has now been recreated in Second Life by her avatar, Janjii Rugani. In another exercise she is studying the conversion of analog language to digital 3D, seeking to preserve the concepts defined by Schlemmer in 1922. The music for the Second Life performance of the dance was written by Soundsmith Kamachi. A hobby musican in real life, he works as an Vista Hermosa Art Center ( VHAC) director in Second Life, occassionally performing his own music in world. His composition for STICK DANCE is based on a percussive ostinato that repeats through all three movements of the dance, creating a fundament for pentatonic melodies and soundscapes. The music for Dance was composed solely using virtual instruments. Contacts JanjiiRuganijajiirugani@gmail.com
