Summary

This book addresses technical and conceptual links between Laban's first career as a visual artist and his subsequent vocation as a dance theorist. Key elements in his analytic movement taxonomy are introduced to familiarize the reader with terms used in the discussion of harmonic theory. Final sections extend the analogic metaphor, elaborating constructs such as tone, interval, scale, modulation, transposition, and harmonic interrelationships, while identifying hypotheses open to further empirical study. This original presentation of harmonics as a general theory of human movement will appeal to scholars in the performing arts, sports and movement studies, and dance and movement therapies.
