The Apollonian Course of 1915 Cosmic Word – Human Speech
6 – 10 April 2015
Conference of the Section for Performing Arts
The conference begins on Easter Monday, 6 April 2015, at 7 p.m. and ends on Friday, 10 April 2015, at 10 p.m.
In August 1915, Rudolf Steiner invited the four eurythmy teachers Elisabeth Dollfus, Tatiana Kisseleff, Lory Smits and Erna Wolfram to a course at the Goetheanum that would form the foundation for the further development of the cosmic dimension of eurythmy and of the soul qualities in speech. Now, a hundred years later, this conference will provide the framework for our explo- ration – in lectures, workshops and conversations – of the impulses given in 1915 and their unfolding since then. How are we making use of these foundations today?
