Kinesthetic Space

Kinesthetic Space deals with how closely the participants are to touching, from being completely outside of body-contact distance to being in physical contact, which parts of the body are in contact, and body part positioning. (Longstaff, 1996)

Laban Movement Analysis is a method and a language invented by Hungarian dancer, teacher and author Rudolf Laban (1879-1958). Laban Movement Analysis can be used to explore the full range of human condition. Taking the body as a reference, the kinesphere is also the container of a cube (containing all diagonal directions and dimensions) and of an icosahedron made by three bi-dimensional planes: it contains angular geometry inside a round geometry.

Laban Movement Analysis

LMA
Laban Movement Analysis is a theoretical and experiential system for the observation, description, prescription, performance and interpretation of human moment. This can be used in acting and dance to create an emotional response from the audience. Rudolf Laban identified four factors of movement:
  • Space: Direct or Indirect
  • Weight: Heavy or Light
  • Time: Quick or Sustained
  • Flow: Bound or Free
