about us

our vision

what do we want to tell the world?

"Eurythmy in Progress" is a independent initiative for young people to get to know eurythmy as a stand-alone art and have intercultural experiences.
Every year in July/August we want to create a participative framework for about 50 young people in the age of 16 – 23 from different cultures and languages, known or unknown to eurythmy, to work together.
A performance at the end concludes the experienced time.
The participants will work on a two-hour art-program on the basis of classical music and a few speech elements. A respectful interaction and social behavior is our biggest concern.
Art-projects in this manner shape our whole life as far as our career choices or spiritual and emotional willingness to meet other people without any prejudice.
Artistic work allows to master difficult challenges like language barriers or cultural borders together.
