The Actor's Body - Laban

Spring 2021

Taught By: Cheryl Clark

Section: A

CRN: 5040

Credits: 1

This is a class for anyone who is interested in embodied performance and clarity in communication on the nonverbal level. All beings express themselves in movement whether they are conscious of it or not. This class brings to consciousness the non-verbal dialogue that all are constantly engaged in and uses primarily the movement theories and explorations of 20th century dance artist and movement theoretician, Rudolf Laban. This methodology is a non-judgmental framework that operates simultaneously on the level of kinesthetic learning (internal focus) and visual/observational learning (external focus), in which both mutually support each other so performers are in the immediacy of the being seen and seeing. Class will actively engage participants in Body use and re-patterning, Space and relationships, and Effort expression.
