The Light Eurythmy Ensemble (Switzerland) and Threshold Theatre with pianist David Guerin present: Transformations Moving Through A Collage of Music and Texts

A dance programme with a difference. Eurythmy, created as a new dance form by Rudolf Steiner (the founder of Anthroposophy and the Rudolf Steiner School movement) is done to speech as well as music: The aim is to speak and sing through movements and gestures that reveal to the eye what language and music bring to the ear.

The programme takes us through a collage of texts and music, from Romantic to Modern, serious to humorous. The highlights are a poem from ‘Four Quartets’ by T. S. Eliot and the first movement of the ‘Tempest Sonata‘ by Beethoven. As well as this, the programme includes poems from the Song of Waitaha, a poem by the well know New Zealand poet and actor Michael Burton (Gunner Inglorious, Being Beethoven), and music pieces by Schumann, Chopin and Kodaly.

Internationally experienced artists perform the programme.

Running time: 1 hour 20 minutes
