Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies

The Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies are interesting for all those who work with movement. 

 

Based on the Laban MOVEMENT ANALYSIS and the BODYWORK of Irmgard Bartenieff, they are constantly evolving.

They are a system and vocabulary to describe, embody and convey movement precisely and clearly.

 

The Laban/ Bartenieff Movement Studies have their own notation system: the motif writing.

 

Every movement contains the following categories :

  • BODY
  • EFFORT
  • SPACE
  • SHAPE
  • RELATIONSHIP
  • PHRASING
