Webinar: Writing Dance And Movement Analysis: Presentation Of Tools Created By Rudolf Laban
When: June 8th to June 9th 2020
PRESENTATION OF THE TWO-PART WEBINAR
At the start of the 20th century, several tools for analyzing movement responding to various motivations were developed in Europe by Rudolf Laban (1879-1958), choreographer, teacher and theorist. These tools have in common the same curiosity for exploring and observing the movements of the human body.
Kinetography (writing system for movement), Choreutic (studies of the harmony of the body in space) or Eukinetic (studies of dynamic variations of the human body) are the three disciplines that have been developed in several European countries, then the United States and Asia. These disciplines are presented today under the term of Laban studies.
There is on one side Kinetography or Labanotation, dedicated to structural notation, and on the other side all the other fields of movement analysis according to Laban, gathered under the term of Laban Movement Analysis. In the UK, the term Choreology is also used.
Developed to provide dance with solid analytical tools, these disciplines later developed applications and connections with other fields: anthropology, ethnology, research, education, robotics or relationships with the healthcare community. Notation is an analysis of movement that improves our practice. It also helps to create a repertoire, a heritage that can be reinvested by people from another time or another culture.
This webinar, led by Raphaël Cottin, dancer, choreographer and specialist in Kinetography, will be presented in 2 parts:
– Day one: one hour will be devoted to the general presentation of these subjects and their genesis (Historical Survey and presentation of the Laban “world”)
– Day two: one hour will be devoted to the presentation of Kinetography (movement notation), its main principles (including some readings and practical exercises behind your screen!) and its applications;
