Starting from today, we will quote books from Irmgard Bartenieff and Rudolf Laban as well as books about Bartenieff Fundamentals and Laban Movement Analyses.
Here the first quote, extracted from "Making Connections - Total Body Integration through Bartenieff Fundamentals" by Peggy Hackney:
"We discovered that Patterning Body Connections is Fundamental, and relational connections are built in. But sometimes certain ones need to be experienced and expressed again by the body members. They need re-membering (re-member-ing). [...]
Irmgard Bartenieff developed her "Fundamentals" as a "re-education into body connection." She utilized adult versions of primal connective patterns. Irmgard described working with Fundamentals as "being one with yourself because you are giving over to those primitive controls.""
In that way, enjoy your day !
