A class of young children from the Institute of Rhythmics, Zurich, at work under the direction of Mimi Scheiblauer, who built the Institute on the principles of Calcroze’s eurhythmics. Children’s natural urge to move around and make a noise is guided by music and used to develop qualities of control and attention. Miss Scheiblauer discusses some of the principles involved.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
