Speech formation and Acting
Speech formation is an art of speaking that is practised as a stage art in recitation and drama, in readings, in speaking for eurythmy, as well as in the area of literary stages or literary theatre.
Based on anthroposophy, they are contemporary spiritual arts that were developed from 1903 onwards beginning with the collaboration of the spiritual scientist Rudolf Steiner and the reciter Marie von Sievers. They continue a long tradition and have been further developed for the application areas of performance art, pedagogy and therapy. The starting point is the linguistic-artistic interpretation of literature (epic, lyric, drama) in recitation, declamation and conversation on the basis of an individual and authentic artistic statement and taking into account the laws of language and poetry such as sound, rhythm, word-breath gesture, content, style and the like.
