The Mastery of Movement.
Laban, Rudolf; Ullmann, Lisa
In this third edition, some amendments and additions have been made to the original text, first published in 1950. As in past editions, the relationship between the inner motivation of movement and the outer functioning of the body is explored. Acting and dancing are shown as activities deeply concerned with man's urge to establish values and meanings. The student is introduced to basic principles underlying movement expression and experience and numerous exercises are intended to challenge his intellectual, emotional and physical responses. The many descriptions of movement scenes and mime-dances are designed to stimulate penetration into man's inner life where movement and action originate. The chapters of the book discuss the following topics: Movement and the Bpdy; The Significance of Movement; Roots of Mime; The Study of Movement Expression; and Three Mime Plays. The book contains nine tables and 23 scenes for study. (Author/DB)
