      Week 27, 1st week of October:

      Week 6, 2nd week of May.

      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 five 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;

      1 and 2: YELLOW,

      3 and 4: VIOLET,

      5: RED

      Colour of stage lights:

      Surrounding them is a colour from the stage lights; they move their feelings according to that colour;

      First part: green and red, foot lights: white and blue

      Second part: white and red, foot lights: green and blue.

      Sound sequence:

      They move in the mood of different sounds of the alphabet, in a sequence:

      1 and 2 I/I,

      3 and 4: A/O/A/O,

       5: L/S/L/S.

      *The vowel sounds are as in the original German so in English: A is [Ah], E is [Eh], I is [ee], O is[Oh], U is [oo],and Ei is as in [by]


      Movement Sequence:

      5 doe its form once whilst 2, 3, and 4 do their little forms three times.

       


      Text form:

      Then during the recitation

      Lines 1-3: ABOVE: green and red, foot lights: white and blue

      5 goes to A, the others do their form once.

      Es ist erstanden aus der Eigenheit

      Mein Selbst und findet sich

       

      5 goes to B, the others do their form once.

      Als Weltenoffenbarung

      Lines 4-7: ABOVE: white and red, foot lights: green and blue.

      In Zeit- und Raumeskräften;

       

      5 finishes its form, the others do their form once more.

      Die Welt, sie zeigt mir überall

      Als göttlich Urbild

       

      They all do the dotted form.

      Des eignen Abbilds Wahrheit.


      Epilogue:

       

      Lighting and sounds as prologue, usually in reverse order.

      They move the prologue forms

       

      John Salter’s translation:

      Arisen from its separate state

      My self is now discovered

      As revelation of all worlds

      Active in space and time;

      On every side the world reveals,

      As archetype divine,

      The truth of my own likeness.
