A Language for Movement: Transcript

Description

This is the transcript for the video "A Language for Movement" (1996) which is part of an Open University series entitled "Seeing through Mathematics". The 25 minute programme shows how notation can help the recording and reconstruction of dances. It focuses in particular on the work of Rudolf Laban and his system of notation known as Labanotation and how we can enjoy nowadays Nijinsky's ballet Afternoon of a Faun thanks to a notational score. Examples of other notational systems for movement and dance are also discussed. The video includes archive material, dancing and interviews with leading notators. There is a link to the video in this repository.
