Artemis Eurythmie Theater
Art Director: Mária Scheily
All members of the group work in schools however with some sacrifice they gain inspiration and strength for their teaching through their artwork.The group gets invited regularly to perform throughout Hungary and abroad. Apart from new, yearly, full evening shows, the group performs children programs in schools, presents regularly to their ever growing fan and support group and at various year cycle celebrations.
Eurythmysts, highly trained musicians and actors work together to create the programs, therefore the encounter of their arts have been playing a central role in their collaborations.
The group was happy to accept the invitation to perform at the Conference where there will be an opportunity to connect with the visual arts.

Rudolf Steiner Szeminárium
It is the goal of the Rudolf Steiner Seminar to support and cultivate the cultural, scientific and artistic values based on Rudolf Steiner’s work, and also to represent and to convey these values in the world…
We wish to make anthroposophy visible for those who are seeking and longing to find it as a source of strength, joy and understanding while searching for the meaning of life. The arts have played a central role in our work from the very beginning, while in the past few years learning from each other and the initiatives of group members won greater space than before. The Rudolf Steiner Seminar regularly invites speakers from abroad. Since 2014 we have been working with the Mystery Dramas of Rudolf Steiner. Through this work we strive to deepen our experiences and our understanding of the world and of anthroposophy, “to permeate ourselves with real knowledge of the spiritual weaving and being of the world” so that all that enters and moves in our souls as thought could come alive. We are pleased to show a few scenes from the Mystery Dramas during the all-artistic conference “A Path to the Mystery of the Middle” so that those present would have a possibility to be moved by them too. We were inspired by what Rudolf Steiner said in 1910 after the first performance of the 1st Mystery Drama: “We would like to think of this milestone of our anthroposophical activity as a flow of anthroposophical ideas, anthroposophical life, into culture. Even if modern humanity is not yet inclined to include in all the rest of external culture what can flow into it from out of the life of the spirit, we would like at least to show in an artistic picture the way the thoughts active in our souls can come alive. Feelings such as these can be sparked off through the anticipation of the fact that human beings will move from the present towards a future when they will feel themselves mediators between the spiritual and the physical world. These events were undertaken just so that this presentiment could awaken.” (Rudolf Steiner, Genesis: Secrets of Creation, Munich, 16 August, 1910.)
Dante group is a fresh, new initiative which started on the 6th of November 2016. The antecedents were programs, workshops, performances that aimed to expand the theatre culture that has been nurtured in Waldorf schools.
An example would be the Theatre of the Future initiative which drew together about seventy theatre enthusiasts of Waldorf teachers and students in a summer camp or the performance of the „KÉP-SZÍN-HÁZ” on the opening night of the exhibition of Zoltan Dobrontei in 2016.
Dante group aims to bring together these hidden streams of artistic initiatives and take them further. Our goal is to call to life a permanent theatre workshop and in the long term to establish an independent theatre company. Therefor it is essential to assist these art initiatives that feed from the impulse of Anthroposophy to find each other and work together.
For the Naput10 Celebration we are preparing to perform Chekov’s play, The Seagull. The two focuses of our performance are firstly, the possibility of renewal of art, secondly, the mystery place between people.
