*Rudolf Laban, (1966, 2011)



  • Laban’s ‘flicking’ as a basic effort
    Translated to the dimensional space of genetic semantics with Laban’s dimensions : Flexible (Depth), Sudden (Breadth) , light (Height), flicking is associated with the code 111 (Yellow).
    Laban The Cube
    Rudolf Laban, (1966, 2011) Eight Basic Efforts. Flicking: Flexible, Sudden, Light. Flicking is flexible in its use of space and it resists both Weight and Time. It is a movement with free flow. It is crisp, light and always brief.
  • Symmetry and asymmetry in body posture

    A symmetrical posture is an attitude in which the arms and legs are held in identical position on the left and right. Someone who adopts a symmetrical attitude shows respect or submission to something or someone else. For example, people who pray, from whatever culture, always assume a symmetrical posture. For example, they are kneeling with folded hands or standing with their hands raised.
    When we feel comfortable in a person’s presence, we adopt an asymmetrical posture. So sometimes we cross our legs, we lean towards one side, or we hang out a bit.
    (Roebers, 2013)

  • Gathering and scattering

    ‘Bending all of our joints and curling up into a ball’. Laban called this gathering. Contrastingly, we can stretch all of our limbs into a star like position, stretching even our fingers, to extend our kinesphere. This is called scattering.
