Review of in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies

By Bethany Bentley, Human Kinetics

What are others thinking about the theory and practice described in Laban/Bartenieff Movement Studies? In a review published in the Journal of Dance Medicine and Science (Volume 24, Number 2, June 2020) Gigi Berardi, dance critic and writer, wrote:


“The chapters in Part II each examine a different category of the Laban/Bartenieff movement framework: body, effort, shape, space, and phrasing. Wahl’s discussion is excellent, with its very clear explanation of terms, for example in Chapter 3 ‘Body’: ‘gesture,’ ‘body attitude,’ and ‘patterns of total body connectivity.’ Ideas such as core-distal patterning and body-half patterning are key concepts that Wahl explains fully and clearly (aided by illustrations).”
