Mechanics of Movement
30 min. No spoken language Premiere 22. 10. 2019
Mechanics of Movement is live dance performance inspired by Laban movement analysis, with the Icosahedron forms the focal point of the piece, with three performers explore the underlying principles of movement.
The Laban Icosahedron is one of the most renown physical structures in dance. It is named after Rudolf Laban (1879-1958), who applied the five regular 3D objects to "harmonic" movement sequences, names "scales". The Icosahedron, upon which Laban bases his scales of movement, has been used in choreography as a framework for dance routines for many decades.
