Laban Movement Study
In this study I looked at applying different factors to work out which effort directed the character/ narrative of the costume object. This head piece forces you to stand with your back slightly bent with restricted visual. Here I am exploring the effort 'pushing' which is a direct, strong and sustainded movement. Often when you are analysising different movements in people you can apply a couple of efforts for example someone moving very slowly but with a nervous twitch in their fingers. With this character in later developments of the movement I added a localised movement with the hands which were direct, light and sudden. (See BNW page for film example)
Having spent only a few days intensely studing Laban techniques and how to apply them to the movement of the objects I would like to further my knowledge.
How do you use Laban ideas of planes of movement to direct a design outcome?
How do the efforts create a movement from the object?
