Stage Training Eurythmy Course at Goetheanum
Scenes from Goethes Faust forming the focus of the artistic work will be performed on the Goetheanum stage.
The training in stage eurythmy aims to deepen skills and faculties already acquired during the basic training and to develop greater artistic independence and discernment when addressing the following questions:
How can I develop an artistic choreography?
How do I find a suitable style; how along with appropriate costumes and lighting do I achieve a successful composition?
What criteria do I use to create a scene, a solo, or an artistic programme?
The aims for the training are:
A deepening interpretation of the work of art
To guide oneself within the social context of the Ensemble
To refine one’s perception of what one is doing in the context of a whole
Shared, differentiated reviews of performances:
What have I seen and experienced? What was intended?
How is my spontaneous judgment differentiated when I focus on different levels of perception?
Courses in specific subjects are the foundation for the artistic projects. They are to deepen and expand the elements necessary for the scenes to be performed. What can be discovered and practised in a more general way can then serve as a basis for the conscious choice of a technique or style in a specific artistic project.
The courses in specific subjects address the following themes:
Goethe’s Faust (Gioia Falk, Frauke Grahl, Eduardo Torres)
Humour, eurythmy in English (Maren Stott)
Contemporary lyrical poetry (Tanja Masukowitz
Contemporary music (Stefan Hasler)
Style in music eurythmy (Ingrid Everwijn)
The musical keys and the zodiac, Approaches to choral eurythmy (Silke Sponheuer)
Courses on costumes, lighting, make-up and technical aspects of the stage
Alongside the studies in eurythmy and a deepening of one’s abilities, every day begins by joining other students studying at the Goetheanum with work on basic anthroposophical topics and themes from Rudolf Steiner’s works. For independent eurythmical work practice rooms are available for members of the Group.
