Rudolf Laban is to dance what Stanislavski is to acting. He is often described as the most important movement theorist of the twentieth century, and probably the most important theorist in dance studies to date. His influence is evident in the work of Mary Wigman, Kurt Joos, Sophie Taeuber-Arp, William Forsythe and Pina Bausch to name but a few.In this sourcebook, Dick McCaw has brought together the key writings on this pioneer of Dance Theatre: articles, essays, speeches at the Laban Guild, excerpts from works in English and new translations of his early works, including Die Welt des Tanzers and Tanz und Gymnastik, both previously unavailable in English.This is a vital and comprehensive resource for students of dance, movement, theatre and performance and an accessible overview of the theory and practice of Rudolf Laban.
