Every year The Laban Guild celebrates the legacy of Rudolf Laban through a lecture from a leading academic or practitioner who actively promotes the work and heritage of this modern dance pioneer, who took refuge in the UK from Germany in 1938. This year the lecture will be a conversation with Ann Hutchinson Guest in which, in her 100th year, she will reflect on the impact of Laban in her life and work.
As a leading practitioner, developer, and innovator of Labanotation she has danced on Broadway, notated the work of some of the world’s leading choreographers, and led the world in utilizing this movement notation system to preserve dance for future generations.
2.15pm The talk is part of the Laban Guild for Movement and Dance Annual Conference /AGM which is a whole day event.
