 International Eurythmics Workshop "Dalcroze 2017"

"Space and Time"

August 11-13, 2017

Institut Rhythmik Hellerau, Dresden, Germany

Register at

The International Eurhythmics Workshop invites you to deal with the terms "time and space" and its variegated assignments. Under musical and choreographical aspects we will examine the relationship between "time of earth" – our chronometrical time – and the "human time" as our perception. Musical parameters of time like metre, beat, note value and eurhythmics can be experienced as human relations. In the process, the methodical starting points of eurhythmics according to Emile Jaques- Dalcroze will be analysed. The focus will be on interpersonal communication such as mutual listening, seeing, feeling and non-verbal action.
