In this ancient Norwegian folk saga of the Holy Nights, a young man, Olaf Åsteson, sleeps for 12 days and nights and experiences a journey of inner awakening. This tale will be performed in the movement art of eurythmy, which transforms speech and music to movement and color by Eurythmy Northwest.
Olaf Asteson’s story was choreographed into eurythmy by the Austrian artist, philosopher and scientist Rudolf Steiner and set to original music by Jan Stuten. The eurythmy portrays the story and Olaf’s inner experiences during his dream journey.
Eurythmy Northwest combines eurythmists from Washington and British Columbia and has been performing in the Pacific Northwest since 2005. They present a wide range of folk and fairy tales, poetry and musical pieces in schools, private institutions and public venues. Vancouver speech artist Patricia Smith is an old friend of the group and delighted to accompany them in this unique and wonderful story.
Alison Roberts is well known as an accompanist for singers, instrumentalists and dancers. She has played for dance companies and in festivals and concerts in Vancouver, Europe and the U.S. She performs regularly in Vancouver with the vocal/instrumental group “With Strings Attached” and with the wind trio “Touch Wood”.
