Transcript of Laban Analysis
The 4 catagories of movement
This relates to the body as an instrument
Whole body actions
The 6 Basic Dance Actions
Jump = Elevation
Turn = Rotation
Travel = Locomotion
Transfer of weight
Body part specific
Use of small gestures
Leading movements with body parts
This relates to the dance environment around us
Personal Space = Laban Cube
Levels = High, Middle, Low
Placement on Stage
This relates to the dynamics of movement
Speed of movement
Fast = sudden
Slow = sustained
Energy of movement
Continuity of movement
This relates to relationships in the dance
Solo, duet, trio, group etc.
When writing about dance, we need to discuss all four elements of Laban Analysis.
By doing so we are able to, not only fully describe the movement, but also begin to link the movement to the theme - thus interpreting the dance.
Your homework task:
You need to select 2 motifs from our group dance piece based on the Charleston.
You will need to use Laban Analysis and the 4 Dance components
You need to describe what happens within each motif - you can also use stick drawings to help!
Aim to use dance specific vocabulary at all times.
Try to keep it brief - it should only be a couple of sentences.
Due in Friday.
