Beyond Dance: Laban's Legacy of Movement Analysis

Front Cover
Brechin Books, 2001 - Biography & Autobiography - 204 pages
Rudolf Laban was a genius who performed and choreographed, but he stretched his theories to everyday movement. His notations found practical use during World War II as women began to work in factories, where he provided them with personalized motions. One of Laban's students, Warren Lamb, was able to refine the unique notations, and Laban's analysis continues to give insight in the modern world of repetitive stress injuries and other ergonomic concerns.
