Title Using rudolf laban's effort system as an inroad to choreography
Date 2015-05
Description This thesis interweaves Rudolf Laban's Effort theories, observation and analysis devices stemming out of the Integrated Movement Studies program, personal and physical influences from ballroom dance, modern dance, and movement analysis, and the fully embodied experience of my first pregnancy as primary resources toward the development of a dance work. I explore how Rudolf Laban's Effort theories aid in the understanding of emotions woven within our dreams. I discuss a creative method for making an original work of choreography, sourcing the content listed above. In this particular arts-based research, the Effort system is capable of benefiting those who seek a language to describe nuances in movement that might be challenging to express. Application of this research also has potential to model specific choreographic tools available in the creative process of choreographing, especially for those wishing to use the Effort system in choreography. Further, this project reveals my own growth as a movement artist, including an excavation of past influences and possible future impact.
