1919

First public eurythmy performance on February 24 in Zurich’s Pfauentheater. Directed by Marie Steiner.

A lecture cycle on “The Social Question” held in Zurich appears in April under the title, Towards Social Renewal. The key idea is to trisect the social organism, that is, to separate the state into a free cultural life, a democratic life of rights and an associative economic life.

Steiner lectures and participates in numerous meetings with workers and industrialists to encourage the formation of works committees.

In autumn, after intensive preparations, the Independent Waldorf School opens in Stuttgart, Germany. Its patron is the director of the Waldorf-Astoria cigarette company, Emil Molt. Steiner is the school’s director until his death in 1925. He offers the teachers courses in education to help them prepare for their task.
