Mystery Drama Summer School:
Interdisciplinary Intensive
With Barbara Renold,
Matthew Dexter &
Stanford B. Paris

August 8-18

Polarities in the social chaos of our time . . .

First performed a century ago, Rudolf Steiner’s four mystery dramas trace the evolving relationships of a group of individuals through multiple incarnations, from ancient times to modern. The unfolding on stage of these interwoven destinies reveals the deep origins of interpersonal and social polarities and strife, and points the viewer toward paths for understanding and reconciling the social issues of our time.

This summer, Threefold Educational Foundation, the Steiner School for Speech Arts, and Eurythmy Spring Valley offer two ten-day intensives especially for those who wish to deepen their relationship with this massive work of art. Each morning, participants in both intensives will join together for speech work, movement exercises, and study. Daily group explorations of Rudolf Steiner’s Speech and Drama Course, given in September 1924, will illuminate the origins and significance of this massively significant piece of twentieth-century art. Each day will also include ample time for rest, recreation, and summer fun in the Threefold community’s bucolic setting.

Created for all levels of familiarity with the plays, the Interdisciplinary Intensive with Barbara Renold offers an interactive, participatory plunge into the third mystery drama, The Guardian of the Threshold, with a focus on scenes 3, 7, and 8: Lucifer and Ahriman’s kingdoms and the Guardian. Study and discussion will be enriched and illuminated by group artistic activities, including actors’ workshops, eurythmy, and speech exercises.

This shared artistic and social “hands-on” experience will create a unique opportunity to • develop your understanding of these important works • explore artistic activity as a path of inner development • and experience art as a path to understanding and resolving interpersonal and social strife.

Location: Threefold Educational Center, 260 Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY.

Tuition: $450-$700, sliding scale. Tuition includes lunch daily at Threefold Café; financial aid and work-study opportunities will be offered.

The Professional Eurythmy Intensive with Dorothea Mier will be devoted to exploring the archetypal spiritual beings portrayed in Rudolf Steiner’s four mystery dramas. Our focus will be on Lucifer, Ahriman, the Guardian of the Threshold, and the Soul Forces Philia, Astrid, Luna, and the Other Philia.

For professional eurythmists, this is a unique opportunity to work with Dorothea Mier and your professional peers to • develop your understanding of these important works • explore artistic activity as a path of inner development • experience art as a path to understanding and resolving interpersonal and social strife • and to let the mystery dramas enliven your own eurythmy work.

Summer Eurythmy Week 2019!
Polarities and Balance:
An Exploration in Eurythmy

Sunday-Friday, August 11-16

Summer Eurythmy Week 2019 will be an exploration of polarities in nature and the human soul. We will discover the balancing element of human activity through movement, creative speech, nature observation, and biodynamic gardening. In tone eurythmy, we will experience the way harmony in music expresses itself through the breathing of the human soul in major, minor . . . and even in dissonance! Through Rudolf Steiner’s eurythmy forms for the Calendar of the Soul, we will discover the dynamic interplay of the human being and the world. Evening activities, shared meals, and outings will complement our week-long immersion into the art of eurythmy. Beginners very welcome. We hope to see you!

Summer Refresher Courses for Eurythmists

Week One: Monday, August 12-Friday, August 16
Week Two: Monday, August 19-Friday, August 23

Eurythmy Spring Valley is delighted to offer two weeks of pedagogy for third- and fourth-year students of eurythmy and professional eurythmists. The theme for both weeks is the heart of childhood: the nine-year change through 7th grade.

Week One: August 12-16
Cristina Geck, from Shining Mountain Waldorf School, will present the eurythmy curriculum, especially through the lens of the major festivals of the year: Michaelmas, the Rites of Spring, the Maypole, and others for grades three to six. A vigorous, insightful, and joyful approach will be offered for teaching eurythmy to students as they navigate the tender and formative heart of childhood.

Week Two: August 19-23
John Holmes, from Kimberton Waldorf School, will present the nine and twelve-year thresholds, and how to understand children’s movement in these stages. John articulates a clear picture of the developmental, therapeutic/hygienic reasons for the pedagogical approaches he presents, offering an invaluable foundation for teaching at any stage.

Each week will provide a review of pedagogical forms and their relevance in this period of childhood, and themes from the curriculum, especially adaptable for use in eurythmy. Practicing teachers will have time to demonstrate and share materials and consider together the challenges of the twenty-first-century child in eurythmy.

Location: School of Eurythmy, 289 Hungry Hollow Rd., Chestnut Ridge, NY.
