Week 52, 4th week of March:
How to breathe with each verse of Calendar of the Soul?
· The Stage lights gives one way, often forward on the prologue- as it is through the text - and reverse order in the epilogue.
· The forms, another: are there one or many forms?
· The colours of the veils, yet another;
· The sounding breath (of the eurythmic movement) sounds of vowels or consonants or both, this is still another variation of the breathing of the weekly verse. A few sound in the prologue and epilogue, and eurythmic sounds done while the text is recited. Some times the recitation is done before and the whole piece is moved in silence.
There are three eurythmists on the stage,
Prologue: or how to breathe before the verse:
Colour of eurythmists:
Surrounding them is a colour on their veil; they move their feelings according to that colour;
Colour of stage lights:
Surrounding them is a colour from the stage lights; they move their feelings according to that colour;
First part: GREN, foot lights white.
Second part: red, foot lights yellow and white.
They move in the mood of different sounds of the alphabet, in a sequence:
1:I / A / O
2: A / I / O,
3: O / I / A.
*The vowel sounds are as in the original German so in English :A is [Ah], I is [ee] and O is [Oh].
Text, 1st form:
Then during the recitation
STAGE LIGHTS: red, foot lights green.
Wenn aus den Seelentiefen
Der Geist sich wendet zu dem Weltensein
Und Schönheit quillt aus Raumesweiten,
They all move the first text form.
Text, 2nd form:
STAGE LIGHTS: YELLOW AND GREN, foot lights red.
Dann zieht aus Himmelsfernen
Des Lebens Kraft in Menschenleiber
Und einet, machtvoll wirkend,
Des Geistes Wesen mit dem Menschensein.
They all move the second text form.
Lighting reverse order from prologue.
first part: red, foot lights green
second part: yellow and green, foot lights red.
They move the prologue form back, so that at the end they arrive at the initial places of this 52nd week.
They move in the mood of different sounds of the alphabet, in the sequence of the prologue or its reverse.
