Colour is everywhere around us and forms a constant visual backdrop to our lives. It is also intimately connected with our soul moods as can be seen in common expressions such as ‘she is feeling blue’, ‘he saw red’, or ‘they were green with envy’. As well as colours being specifically mentioned in writings such as poetry, many poems also have an overall colour mood, which one can work with when expressing the poem in eurythmy/movement.
In eurythmy we work with Goethe’s colour theory, which talks of the ‘deeds and sufferings of the light’. Colour emerges when light engages with darkness in different ways – e.g. whether it accepts it or pushes it away. Working with colour in movement can give a stronger impression of the qualities of each colour as well as the influence it has on one’s soul mood.
During this workshop we will be exploring the different colours in movement and their influence on our soul mood and how we connect with others. We will also work with how to find the basic colour mood of a poem and how it can be expressed in movement. There will be a coffee break about halfway through where there will be time to chat and talk about our experiences.
Eurythmy can be done by anyone regardless of experience with movement and level of fitness. All you need to bring is yourself!
