Arquitetura do Movimento – part 1 of 3

Andrea Jabor founded ‘Arquitetura do Movimento’ (movement’s architecture) about 10 years ago. As a dancer, choreographer and a woman who likes to invite people to communicate in space she had to appear here on my blog.

Her present performance is called ‘Sala de estar – As cinco peles do ’ (Living Room – The five Skins of ) in Gloria, Rio Centre. Her own homepage you can find here.

Rudolf Von Laban (1879 – 1958)
Another architect interested in the relationship between the moving human form and in the space which surrounds it. Interested so much that he never actually worked as an architect but as a dancer, choreographer and theorist of choreography and movement.
He is known for his Labanotation (or Kinetography Laban) a way to transcript , which is still used today. It uses the following categories to define (or any movement)
– Direction of the movement
– Part of the body doing the movement
– Level of the movement
– Length of time it takes to do the movement

  1. dd.r, architect and comic designer,

    I saw this marvellous “Living room” dance piece when I was in Rio. I knew nothing about dance for 2 years ago, but everytime I see a new performance, I realize the universality of dancing. It works with emotions, body , music, and finally architecture. When I look at the dancers, I see first an human body, exactly the same sensation that I have when I want to start to paint someone. At the end, It is a moving mirror that show us our own human body and soul. I think that’s the reason because I feel so involved when I seat in this “Living Room”. Thanks to Andrea, and thanks to you, Julakim, for this experience.
