Eurythmy as Visible SingingSteinerBooks
Eurythmy was born in the turbulent decades of the early twentieth century. From an individual question as to whether it was possible to create an art based on meaningful movement, Rudolf Steiner responded with fresh creative possibilities for a renewal of the arts in their totality. The new art of eurythmy was an unexpected gift. Today, music eurythmy, along with its counterpart based on speech, is practiced as an art, taught as a subject in schools, enjoyed as a social activity and applied as a therapy.
This definitive translation of Steiner’s original lecture course on eurythmy includes a facsimile, transcription, and translation of the lecturer’s notes, together with an introduction and index. The volume is supplemented with an extensive “companion,” featuring full commentary and notes compiled by Alan Stott, as well as a translation of Josef Matthias Hauer’s Interpreting Melos.
