There is a worldwide community of individuals that have had the benefit of discovering the work of Rudolf Steiner as part of their own biographies. In this community you will find pathways that take on every aspect of contemporary culture in terms of the fields of work that they are in. Medicine, Agriculture, Child Education, Adult Education, Finance, Manufacturing, Social Work, Remedial Care, Publishing, Performing Art, Plastic Arts, Architecture — there is virtually no aspect of contemporary civilization that is not touched by people working outwardly in every field while inwardly trying to carry new impulses into their daily tasks that reveal a longer term picture of destiny.
These pictures of the forces of destiny are shaped by their understanding of the work of Rudolf Steiner, 1861-1925, a scientist of the spirit. Dr. Steiner’s work included four dramas created during arts festivals in Munich in 1910, 1911, 1912 and 1913. These dramas show the destiny elements for a constellation of characters through multiple life times, from Ancient Egypt, through Hibernia, the Middle Ages and in modern times (early Twentieth Century).
The clarity of understanding of the formative forces of destiny (karma) and the central questions of esoteric Christianity, make these works unique in human history.
A group of artists who produced these dramas in the English Language and toured throughout the northern hemisphere during the 1980’s and 1990’s are coming together again to work on a new play based upon the characters and events of the first four plays.
This new play coupled with a Shakespearean production and an orchestral Eurythmy production (the art form initiated by Rudolf Steiner) is the basis of a planned international tour in 2015/16. The plan is large and bold. The modern challenges to keep alive and
develop performing art that is rooted in Beauty, Truth and Goodness are manifold. This group of individuals, including artists and skilled supporters in a wide variety of fields, has agreed to undertake to bring this worldwide tour into being.
The pathway is to further reveal to an ever widening audience the understanding of the complexity of destiny for individuals and for culture at large when “The Working of the Spirit” is included in the day to day realities of life.
