Description - Mastering Movement by John Hodgson
This study of the work of the European choreographer and pioneer of dance notation, Rudolf Laban (1879-1958), examines the many strands of his thinking and its application. The book attempts to convey the full implications of his ideas about movement, for like Picasso in painting, and Stravinsky in music, Laban has been a seminal influence and innovator who altered the whole course of modern dance and movement. His mark can be detected in works as diverse as that of the German dancers and choreographers Mary Wigman, Kurt Joos and Pina Bausch, and British theatre practitioners Joan Littlewood, William Gaskell and Joan Plowright.
