The Moving Body: the Laban/Bartenieff System Applied to Performance Traning and Research
by Ciane Fernandes, Editora Annablume, 2002, 300 pgs. (soon, in English edition)

preface by : Regina Miranda *
collaborators: Susanne Schlicher e Rosel Grassmann


The book is the result of a two years extensive research on the method developed by Rudolf von Laban and his disciples, updating and expanding concepts and practices. The method, internationally used in body-related professions by educators, artists, therapists, writers, etc, is here applied simultaneously to movement analysis and technique. The method is placed within a multimedia artistic viewpoint, intertwining theory, learning and imagery (animals, architecture, nature, objects, classroom and performance photos, paintings, etc.) in order to explain movement principles, exercises and notation symbols in detail. It travels from classroom to everyday life, movement composition, stage performances and writing criticism. The book draws Laban Movement Analysis as a language of movement in movement.

"Good news for a child:
In everything, everything you shall have your body in your favor. The body is always on our side. It is the only thing that, in the end, does not abandon us."

Clarice Lispector (Para Não Esquecer / Not To Forget, 1991)
