Group Will Give Eurythmy Show

Group Selects FIRST SPRING OPEN HOUSE:
16 Scenarios I Hatchers Will

Entertain Students Tomorrow

By ROSE PERLBERG
European and American per-
formers will make more than 15
selections of poetry and music
"expressively visible" in 8 p.m.
shows tomorrow and Thursday in
Barbour Gymnasium.
In a unique art - Eurythmy,
dancers accompany musical and
poetic recitations with a series of
bodily movements.
Prof. Ernest Katz of the physics
department describes Eurythmy
as "greatly detailed elaboration of
the gestures which normally go
hand-in-hand with speech."
Body is Speech Organ
Says the professor, who has
seen many Eurythmic perform-
ances in Europe (the art is "al-
most unknown in the U.S."):
"Eurythmy makes the whole
body an organ of speech. Letters,
words, moods and rhythms are
expressively portrayed by weaving
and flowing movements."
Prof. Katz explains that units
are studied separately and then
combined. The result, he contin-
ues, is often considered an "ar-
tificially abstract dance. But if
it is done well, one can look be-
low the surface and find rather
a very beautiful and extremely
expressive art."
Started in Austria
In order to fully appreciate
Eurythmy, the professor recom-
mends "looking at it in terms of
the poetic and musical sounds
that are being expressed."
and the Austrian philosopher Ru-
dlhSteiner. With Eurythmy,
("Greek in name only") Steiner
was "attempting to draw art, sci-
ence and religion more closely to-
gether," remarks Prof. Katz.
The art developed from his
ideas and more than 60 schools for
teaching it have been established
throughout the Western world.
Group Currently on Tour
The seven performers who will
appear in Ann Arbor are current-
ly on tour throughout the United
States. Because he knows the
group personally, Prof. Katz
"acted as middle man" and was
able to bring them here.
Their show is presented free of
charge under the sponsorship of
the University's Departments of
Art, Dance, English Language
and Literature and Speech; the
School of Music and the Program
of Physical Education for Women.
Professor Katz outlined the pro-
gram. Dancer Helene Trives will
appear first, with an introduction
and demonstration of the ele-
ments of Eurythmny,

Miss Trives and fellow dancer
Kari Lunde van Oordt follow in
a duet with their interpretation of.
a Bach piano piece. Pianist Fon-
taine Zipf who plays all musical
selections is a University graduate
student, Prof. Katz remarked.
Contrast between poems in Eng-
lish and German may be noted,
