Introductory Workshop to Laban Movement Analysis

Introductory Workshop to Laban Movement Analysis


19 Jun, 2017


Alexander Building, University of Exeter New North Road Exeter EX4 4LA Get Directions


During this one-day introductory training you will learn the basics of Laban Movement Analysis (LMA), a recognized system for describing, analysing and interpreting all varieties of movement of the human body. You will gain an embodied awareness of your own movements before acquiring some of the theoretical notions. In this sense you will be escorted into an embodied experiential appraisal of your own individual movement patterns as well as of group dynamics. The workshop will provide a space for the practical exploration of these emerging movement patterns, as well as for their discussion through the theoretical lenses of LMA. LMA was introduced by Rudolf Laban, one of the most important figures in contemporary dance history as well as a visual artist, and further developed in Europe, the UK and US by several scholars and movement practitioners (Irmgard Bartenieff, Warren Lamb, Peggy Hackney and Carol-Lynne Moore among others). It occupies a specific place among the wider methodologies for the study of human movement firstly originated by Laban, aiming at outlining tools to approach the qualities of movement above the sole scope of staged performance.
