Project focused on the analysis of human movement through a system of movement scores, the Labanotation, to understand the whole structure of it.
Dance is a form of expression that makes use of the movement of the body, with or without music, to communicate. It is an art that is difficult to extrapolate and represent through a writing language, as is the score to music.
However, Rudolf von Laban, was the first to provide a complete system to dance, raising the movements of different parts of the body through different symbols and schemes, which can be interpreted by another person thanks to this set of symbologies, called Labanotation or Laban cinematography.
The project proposes to go one step further and search for areas where movement is neither choreographed nor premeditated, providing another vision of this movement, thus managing to make the movement of the body and its richness count in the expressiveness of each step, as if it were a dance piece. How do we write to hug a person, ride a bicycle or have a coffee?
The methodology is based on the analysis and subsequent interpretation of this extensive system and how it can be extrapolated and give way to other aspects beyond dance, following the logic and reliability of the system already created. As a result of this, questions and doubts arise about what movement is and how it can be captured in order to be reinterpreted. We also reflect on the extent to which these actions could be choreographed or pre-established.
