Abstract:

Alan Lomax and his associates, beginning in the late 1950s undertook a monumental study of the relationship between style in song and dance cross-culturally. It began with Cantometrics which developed a common language description for the many variables in performance style in the diverse cultures of the world and measured how those variables clustered geographically and in relation to means of subsistence and aspects of social organization. Choreometrics continued this investigation into dance and movement. This compilation includes four films and background information on Choreometrics as studied by Lomax, Forrestine Paulay and others.

Dance & human history: This film examines two important parameters in the Choreometric study, the dominant trace form of the movement and single/multiple articulation of the torso, and relates them to geography and type of society.

Step style : This film examines the use of the foot in dance cross culturally.

Palm play: This film examines the use of the palm in dance cross culturally.

The longest trail: This film uses Choreometric data as evidence that the Americas were populated by Siberian hunters.
