Prologue and epilogue week 01 Or how to breathe before and after the verse:
There are four eurythmists on the stage, four aspects of the mantra.

The epilogue choreography is done in the same way as the prologue.

The Verse: The choreography is done in two parts, on the same pattern as the
Wenn aus den Weltenweiten
Die Sonne spricht zum Menschensinn

*******Thank you so much for the eurythmy indications. There is a lot I could
say, but intellectualizing what should be experienced through eurythmy is not
a good idea. After having seven years of eurythmy, I am hoping that we can
bring some to Virginia Beach. I find it hard to hear myself saying this, as
such a book-lover, but I realized when I was getting my training as a Waldorf
school teacher that the most important thing of all Steiner gave to the world
was eurythmy (and sprechgestaltung).
