Making sound visible... In October 2019 the “Light-Eurythmy-Group” will be touring New Zealand. The Performing artists from Switzerland have been travelling the world for many years.

This new form of life invigorating movement is an Art, making visible speech and music. Eurythmy uses for it's expression the most flexible of all instruments – the human body: Eurythmy propounds that each sound is universal and that there are different movements for different sounds; with each consonant, vowel, note and even the period between them, having its own distinctive movement.

This art of making sound visible was first conceived in 1912 by Rudolf Steiner an Austrian writer, scientist, artist and philosopher (1861-1925). The word Eurythmy stems from Greek roots, meaning: beautiful, harmonious rhythm. The Light-Eurythmy-Group is based in Arlesheim-Dornach near Basel in Switzerland. It has been lead by Thomas Sutter for the past two decades.

Eurythmy is not only for artistic presentation on the stage, but is used worldwide in Steiner Schools for Children's harmonious development. It is also used for curative healing for all sorts of illnesses and general well being, as it works in a subtle way deeply through the human body.

“The song of the Earth” is a colourful Composition of poetry and Music rising questions on our relationship to the earth. It has it's culmination in the Fairies Scene out of the Midsummer Nights Dream by William Shakespeare, where the Queen of the fairies states that “the seasons change for a reason.”

“Peter and the Wolf”: This lovely musical story by Sergei Prokofiev, brings joy to children from 6 to 96, it is especially charming to see all the different animals and persons come to life through Eurythmy. Each Character has its own melody and even the garden gate and the grass around the pond begin to dance. Everyone loves the animals and birds and all are eager to find out if Peter succeeds to catch the great grey wolf!
