Laban for Actors & Dancers

Jean Newlove

A handbook, complete with graded exercises, for teachers and students wanting a practical introduction to Laban's famous system of movement.

Rudolf 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.

See also Laban for All, a basic 'how to' book on Laban from the same author.

Laban for All

Jean Newlove & John Dalby

Rudolf Laban is one of the great theorists and practitioners of movement. He laid down a system of 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 For All offers a simplified version of his system which can be used by relative beginners upwards. The result is a thorough – and thoroughly practical – grounding in the most significant movement system of modern times.
