S-2 / Laban Bewegungsstudien
In the frame of Open Spaces/Sommer Tanz 2017
This workshop follows Rudolf von Laban’s movement studies, encouraging clarity in understanding movement. We explore how the analytical parameters body, space, dynamics and form can help us to perceive our own movement, as well as observe, describe and write the movement of someone else.
People of diverse physicalities are very welcome and encouraged to attend. Unfortunately not accessible for wheelchair users.
