The Paradise Play portrays creation and ‘the fall’ together with the spiritual forces that lie behind the events we see acted out on the stage. It prepares us to celebrate the birth of Christ and is the first of the Oberufer plays which were collected by Karl Julius Schroer, one of Rudolf Steiner's teachers. They were passed on by oral tradition from a community living on the island of Oberufer on the Danube. The three plays represent a unique survival of the medieval mystery play tradition and form a vibrant part of the life of many Steiner Waldorf schools. The workshop (for adults) will offer the opportunity to experience the play in song, speech and eurythmy and to explore how these art forms carry its message. The performance is suitable for adults and children over 7.
