A special kind of birthday party, arranged by Barbara Schultze, Herbert Fiedler und Dorothea Weise took place at the Remscheid Academy from 17 – 21 March 2015 as an opening for the events series in 2015 to celebrate the 150th birthday of Émile Jaques-Dalcroze.

In close cooperation with the German Association of Music and Movement / Eurhythmics (AMBR) the academy presented an extensive workshop and conference program with international guests from numerous European countries and Argentina. The main focus being on the Dalcroze method, eurhythmics with a special profile and interdisciplinary eurhythmics.

It gave festival-goers a comprehensive insight into the field of eurhythmics, its methods and its perspectives. It should be of particular interest to the students young graduates and the panels of experts discussing artistic and educational topics. The finals for music and movement composition took place over 2 evenings.

Prizes were awarded by the jury as follow: Category adults: 1st prize Amelia Mauderli (Bern), 2nd prize Anna Lipiec (Katowice), public award Cheng Xie (Weimar). Category children: No 1st but two 2nd prizes: Michèle de Bouyalsky (Bruxelles) and Elena Romanowa (Moscow), public award Johanna Claus (Biel/Bienne).

A further highlight was “The humour of the voice” performed by Hilde Kappes (Berlin). It seems rather unbelievable that only one person is able to bring out all these characters of voice and sound, personalities and ages she typified in such a warm and cheerful way. The audience was enthusiastic.

The fully booked academy was buzzing with the activity of lecturers and participants who did get to know each other over those five days. On the last day a new project was born: “InterRhythmics”: It wishes to connect eurhythmic students and graduates for regular interdisciplinary exchange in related fields of activity and arts.
