Bauer is a play by Lauren Gunderson that had its world premiere in March 2014 at the San Francisco Playhouse which also commissioned it. Based on the life of the German painter Rudolf Bauer, it tells the story of how, after having arrived to USA in the beginning of World War II, he was tricked by the fellow German artist and love of his life, Hilla von Rebay, into signing a contract that gave Solomon R. Guggenheim the legal rights to all of his paintings and any future works he created. The play triggered a retrospective of Bauer’s work at the Weinstein Gallery in San Francisco.
Bauer is the second play featured in BAT’s 2020 (virtual) Shelter-in-place Season II.
Each performance reading will be different than what you can find anywhere else on social media or streaming. The readings will not be recorded – these are live, in real-time. It is a chance to experience something unique in these twisted times.
