Rudolf Laban

Rudolf Laban is one of the great theorists and practitioners of movement. He laid down a system for analysing - and annotating - the way the human being moves in space. He ascribed values to these movements, releasing the expressive power contained within each one of them.

Laban is to movement what Stanislavski is to acting. He devised the first wholly successful system for recording human movement, a system which is increasingly influential in the training of actors and dancers.
