Laban/Bartenieff Movement System: The Wholeness of Duality as seen and experienced through Space Harmony

Master teachers and movement analysis training faculty Karen Studd and Cat Maguire in conjunction with Inspirees are pleased to offer an opportunity to deepen foundational knowledge of the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System.  As teachers of WholeMovement, Karen and Cat have developed LBMS course work which seeks to blend theory and practice and to link personal development to professional application. As an integral part of WholeMovement and its approach to teaching they are committed to the ongoing evolution of the theory and practice of the System.
Duality is a foundational pattern. In the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System this is a construct seen throughout the entire system. Space Harmony is rich with patterns of duality including the “Duals” of the Geometry of the Platonic Solids. Which are used in the Laban/Bartenieff Movement System as models of the personal Space of the Kinesphere in mapping the directions of our actions. In this Whole Movement workshop, starting with the Body Space Duality, we will explore the Space Harmony Dualities in relation to Innersphere and Kinesphere and our movement experience and expression. We will also link this to the other Movement Themes of Stability Mobility and Function Expression.
This master workshop is designed to support those with prior knowledge and experience of LBMS including those in training (or graduates from) Inspirees DMT, CM and LBMS programs. This workshop is also open for those who have exposure to the map of Space developed by Rudolf Laban who used the forms of the Platonic Solids to identify Spatial Directions and patterns of movement along pathways through the mover’s personal space. You are invited to deepen your awareness of and appreciation for the Space we contain – our Innersphere, and the Space we are contained within – the personal space of the Kinesphere.
Join Karen and Cat in this LBMS workshop reviewing aspects of Laban’s Space Harmony practice, primarily linked to patterns of duality including the “Duals” of the Geometry of the Platonic Solids. This workshop will focus on exploring how the theory and practice of Space Harmony can support both the observation and experience of movement in finding meaning. And how this in turn can support optimizing the capacity of movement both functionally and expressively.
This workshop will be taught online through Zoom meeting room.
Dates: September 14th – 16th, 7:30am – 10am EST (NY time, 7:30pm -10 pm Beijing time )
The course is taught in English with Mandarin translation.
Tuition: 230USD, 185USD for early bird who pays the tuition before August 23.
A certificate of completion attesting to 7.5 hours of continuing education will be issued to those fully participate by WholeMovement and Inspirees Institute.
