Heinrich Tessenow’s Festival Theatre is seen as leading the way for modern architecture. Take a tour of the Jaques-Dalcroze Institute of Education for Rhythmic Gymnastics, founded in 1911, and discover fascinating details about the architecture and chequered history of Hellerau Festival Theatre, a place which has attracted artists and architects from all over Europe, including Le Corbusier, Kafka, Kokoschka, Nolde, Poelzig, Rachmaninoff and Mary Wigman. Today, HELLERAU - the European Center for the Arts Dresden follows up with the splendid period of the house from 1911 to 1914 and, once again, became one of the most important centers of contemporary art in Germany and Europe.
