schema:reviewBody""Rudolf Laban was the famed dancer - choreographer and "founding father" of expressionist dance, whose experience as a painter, sculptor, and architect influenced his innovative choreographic techniques. His important works and creation of one of the most significant forms of dance notation make him an essential component of dance history. Rudolf Laban: The Dancer of the Crystal examines Laban's training, his teaching experiences, and the discovery and development of his principles of form and movement, focusing on his choreographic and philosophical work. Evelyn Doerr presents intriguing tidbits of the artist's experience, such as Laban's ambivalent position as the "dance organizer" of the Nazi party in Germany, in a historical and philosophical context, offering insights to his choreographic processes and the events that shaped his life." "Rudolf Laban presents the different stages and elements of Laban's choreography, discussing, for example, Laban's "dance-sound-word" instructional approach, his concept of the "movement choir" and examples of its realization, the concepts of eukinetics and choreutics, and a description of how these subjects were taught in his school."--BOOK JACKET."
