In her unique collection of the verbal language of dance practitioners and researchers Valerie Preston-Dunlop presents a comprehensive view of people in dance: what they do, their movement, their sound, and the space in which they work - from the standpoint of the performers, choreographers, audiences, administrators, and teachers. The words and phrases of their technical and vernacular languages (which are used to communicate what is essentially a non-verbal activity) have been collected in rehearsal, classes and workshops by interviews, and from published sources.

"The work and ideas of Rudolf Laban (1879-1958), dancer, choreographer and seminal theoretician of movement and dance, have had a profound impact across an extraordinary range of disciplines. To mark the 50th Anniversary of his death, Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance held an International Conference asking how and where Rudolf Laban's work is being practised today, how his ideas are being developed, and how relevant they are to the 21st Century. Conference presenters and delegates came from 26 countries to address these questions through papers, workshops, performances, films and lecture demonstrations amounting to around eighty presentations. Their work explored the legacy and current developments of Rudolf Laban's work around the world in subjects ranging from: choreography; movement analysis; choreology; the documentation of the performing arts; architecture; therapy and education to the training of the dancer, actor and musical conductor"--Publisher

The makers of modern dance in Germany by Isa Partsch-Bergsohn( Visual )

1 edition published in 2004 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Rare archival films, stills and interviews illuminate the rise of modern dance in Europe and its founders, Rudolf Laban, Mary Wigman and Kurt Jooss. Part I begins with Rudolf Laban, credited with being one of the most important innovators and guiding forces for modern dance. It continues with Laban's two most gifted and influential students, Mary Wigman, who became the foremost choreographer and exponent of German Expressionist dance, and Kurt Jooss, who was Laban's assistant and lead dancer. Jooss later established his own company, Ballets Jooss, with great success until forced to leave Germany for political reasons in 1933. Part II continues with the 1936 Olympics and the cancellation by Josef Goebbels of Laban's massive opening choreographic piece The Spring Wind and The New Joy, and Laban's subsequent fall from favor. World War II finds Jooss and Laban teaching and working in England, while Wigman remains in Germany only to experience the destruction of her school in an air raid. The post-War period focuses on Jooss' return to Germany and the famous Folkwang School; and Wigman's eventual move to West Germany and return to choreography

She recalls his special qualities as a teacher, and describes his research into the movement of industrial workers, which he called the "system of industrial rhythm." Discussing her current work at the Laban Centre in London, she talks about her research into the birth of modern dance in Europe, in which Laban played a major role, and her role in organizing an exhibition utilizing materials from the Centre's wide-ranging Laban collection."
Precarious housing and hidden homelessness among refugees, asylum seekers, and immigrants in the Toronto Metropolitan Area by Valerie Preston-Dunlop( )

2 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Concerns about the housing situation of newcomers have increased recently. It is taking longer for newcomers to achieve wages and salaries equivalent to those of equally qualified Canadian-born workers, the incidence of low incomes is increasing among immigrant households at the same time as it has been declining among Canadian-born households, and housing is becoming more expensive in Canada's major cities, including Toronto. Affordable rental housing of any type is in short supply in Toronto where few rental units are suitable for families and almost 90,000 households are on the waiting list for subsidized social housing. This study examined the housing circumstances of two vulnerable newcomer groups; refugees selected overseas before arriving in Canada and asylum seekers who file a refugee claim upon arrival in Canada. Our approach is comparative - we analysed the housing circumstances of newcomers thought to experience greater housing vulnerabilities, refugees and asylum seekers, and those of other immigrants who usually arrive with more social and financial resources
