The Laban Summer School
16 August - 18 August
University of Bedfordshire, Bedford Campus
Every year The Laban Guild holds a Summer School which explores the work of modern dance pioneer Rudolf Laban in a contemporary context.
The work of Laban, who took refuge in the UK from Germany in 1938, gained great popularity in dance and physical education and still plays a key role in actor training. This year lead tutor Anna Carlisle offers a day based on Further Laban Studies for more experienced practitioners, followed by site specific choreography, while Cathy Washbrooke will offer a variety of sessions for those newer to Laban’s work. Other experienced Laban-based practitioners contributing to the course include Darren Royston, Rhyan Parry and Uma O’Neill.
