The mastery of movement by Rudolf von Laban( Book )

134 editions published between 1950 and 2014 in 6 languages and held by 2,004 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this edition, as in the first one, the relationship between the inner motivation of movement and the outer functioning of the body is explored. Acting and dancing are shown as activities deeply concerned with man's urge to establish values and meanings. The student is introduced to basic principles underlying movement expression and experience and the numerous exercises are intended to challenge his intellectual, emotional and physical responses. The many descriptions of movement scenes and mime-dances are designed to stimulate penetration into man's inner life whence movement and action originate. -from dust jacket

The language of movement; a guidebook to choreutics by Rudolf von Laban( Book )

32 editions published between 1966 and 2012 in 3 languages and held by 804 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"When towards the end of the nineteenth century Rudolf Laban began to take an interest in all forms of dance, it was with an enthusiastically searching mind, looking for the very roots of active living. He believed the key for the unfolding of human capacities to be embedded in the dynamic configurations of dance and that man could enhance his creative powers by becoming aware of the nature of shapes and rhythms through which living organisms express and communicate. Choreutics can be said to contain the essence of Laban's thought as well as an elaboration of the framework which he found useful for the penetration of the bewildering complexity of human movement. This he based on the unity of space and movement and he recognised a natural order in which the energy from within unfolds in space. This book gives a cogent account of the basis of Laban's theory of space harmony; this may become of similar significance to the dancer, dance teacher and choreographer as harmony of music - with which it can be compared - is to the musician. . Of special interest in this volume is the explicit presentation of the grammatical and syntactical aspects of the language of movement together with consideration of its notation. It is shown that this language is relevant not only to the dancer, actor and musician but also to the architect, designer and sculptor, and moreover that the aspects of Harmony stretch beyond the bounds of aesthetical use into the field of everyday living."
