In the speech Eurythmy we can express for example an A through an opening gesture or an I through stretching.
For example a B has an embracing character. So there are for each sound specific movement gestures, which express the quality of the sound. Imagine what you would see in the air if somebody is speaking a sound. Some people experimented with smoke that we can create a picture in the air if we are speaking a certain sound. For example the O was round and the S sharp like a knife. With the Eurythmy gestures we create the same pictures through our movement. We make the spoken word visible.
That offers us the possibility to express the character of a poem or a story, as an living art piece.
Added to this each sound has its healing potential. There are existing different sound sequences which calm us down or enliven us. For example a R sound gives us energy, a D sound helps us to connect with the ground, a L Sound harmonizes and so on.
Eurythmy always offers ways to balance and harmonize.
