21 videos, 2h15min
Vowels are forces of calmness, heart forces. Where there is restlessness and chaos, they order, form, point to the essential. Actually, they have no external movement. Their principle is radiation, the presence, the role model. They act as invisible magnetic fields that structure the space and even give support when the exterior is removed.
In the course you learn the basic gestures of the vowels A, E, I, O, U, Ei, Au and the inner aspects of how they are built. You also get to know many exercises and variations of execution. Learning the movements is easy and the effect is amazing.
450 Years before the birth of eurythmy, the basic eurythmic gestures of all five vowels of the alphabet have already been displayed in a painting on the south wall of the dining room of the Dominican convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie in Milan. As we explore the individual vowels, we will interpret the painterly execution of these five gestures and relate them to the events of the Crucifixion.
