The international Eurythmy, Eurythmy therapy and Speech Conference has been postponed to 2022; instead a digital sharing of experiences will take place on 7 to 9 April 2021.

Meeting in person and perceiving each other directly are essential for eurythmy teachers, speech artists, stage artists and eurythmy therapists. Since such meetings are not possible under current official regulations and not enough people are able to travel, our Sound and Speech conference has been postponed to 18 to 22 April 2022.

Instead, the digital medium itself will become the subject of a digital sharing of experiences from 7 to 9 April 2021 on questions such as: How do we approach eurythmy, speech and therapy under digital conditions? How can necessity be turned into productivity and creativity? How can warmth and substance be created? What tips do we have for each other? We will look at areas such as

– learning: what is needed in order to work meaningfully with digital media? How to offer online courses? How can we experience our presence in front of the screen? Everything will be covered – from anthropology to technical know-how.

– sharing experiences on digital approaches in the individual disciplines

– gaining strength through artistic work, even under digital conditions.

Because the dramatic arts live from being perceived, artistic contributions can be filmed before the ‘meeting’ and impulses from the artistic work briefly presented.

The material will be cut into clips which can be viewed during the online meeting and for a week after.
