How is labanotation used today?
Furthermore, what does labanotation mean?
Labanotation or Kinetography Laban is a notation system for recording and analyzing human movement that was derived from the work of Rudolf Laban who described it in Schrifttanz (“Written Dance”) in 1928. It also teaches Labanotation and arranges the staging of dances from the system scores.
Beside this, how do you read labanotation?
The Labanotation staff is read from bottom to top. The space below the double bar lines at the bottom is for the starting position. The double bar lines at the top indicate the end of the movement. In the first measure, the forward high symbol is the length of twobeats, it therefore takes two beats to perform.
Here we detail the five elements that all forms of dance and creative movement have in common: body, action, space, time and energy. Being able to identify and understand these core characteristics can help you when talking about a dance performance or can help you get your own messages across through movement.
