Eurythmy Taster Sessions

Presented by: Mioara Tarzioru
Location: TS1 (Alexander Building, Thornlea, New North Rd.)
Postcode: EX4 4LA  Show on Map

You are being invited to take part in taster sessions led by Mioara Tarzioru that will introduce to you elements of the Chekhov technique, as well as simple eurythmy exercises which are going to be explored in a second artistic project of a Research through Practice PhD entitled King Leir and his Three Daughters.

The sessions will take place in TS1 on Wednesdays 4,11 and 18 October.
The script is based on the English mediaeval ballad with excerpts from Shakespeare’s King Lear, leading towards a 30-40-minute presentation at the end of the academic year.
Eurythmy was developed by the philosopher and spiritual teacher Rudolf Steiner as an art that makes speech visible and enhances our experience presence on the stage in terms of body, space and social awareness.
Michael Chekhov, one of the most famous actors and acting teachers of the twentieth century, deemed eurythmy essential for drama training, helping actors to develop their acting skills and connect to their source of creativity. There is also a compelling social aspect to eurythmy, which helps with developing the ‘ensemble’ technique.
Mioara is a qualified eurythmy teacher with previous stage experience, both as a eurythmist and an actress.
