Labanotation in Perpetuum mobile

Last week, I promised I would tell you more about my recent meeting with Jacqueline Challet-Haas: I wanted to check the dance notation of my Perpetuum mobile, a composition for dancing clarinetist. (Perpetuum mobile starts at around 2:27 in the video PPP for dancing clarinetist.)

An excerpt from my dissertation.

I have been interested in dance notation for years, and especially since the composition of Wu jú sè, a quartet for clarinet, double bass, five Chinese opera gongs, and dancer—incidentally, the first piece I composed in my Arc-en-ciel cycle. I chose then to use Labanotation (kinetography Laban), rather than other movement notation systems.

I have been lucky to work several times with Jacqueline Challet Haas, the leading specialist of Laban notation in France.

Jacqueline Challet-Haas will be a guest at the Conservatoire de Strasbourg during their event Rudolf Laban, le danseur de cristal, June 17-19, 2011. I think I'll be there!
