Eurythmy as Visible Speech

Eurythmie als sichtbare Sprache

Fifteen lectures for eurythmists, Dornach 24 June to 12 July 1924, with two preceding lectures, Dornach 4 Aug. 1922 and Penmaenmawr 26 Aug. 1923, with associated notebook entries.

„Only someone who creatively unfolds a sense for art from an inner calling, an inner enthusiasm, can work as an artist in eurythmy. To manifest those possibilities of form and movement inherent in the human organization, the soul must inwardly be completely occupied with art. This all-embracing character of eurythmy was the foundation for all that was presented.“

„For the poet, for the thinker, and for the movement artist who thinks with his/her whole body, the highest mental act is done with all their heart and with all their mind and with all their soul.“

Alan Stott
