Recreating Rudolf Laban's 'Solos and Duos'



Preston-Dunlop, Valarie
Trinity Laban, London (2013)


Detailed Description

Rudolf Laban's radical choreographic output for his company, the Kammertanzbühne Laban, consisted in an abundance of solos and duos designed the provide the regular audiences of 1924 with a rich and startling experience. These short, pithy pieces inspire laughter, awe, shock, delight, curiosity and more. Seven are presented here:

Mondäne - a solo for a celebrity

Krystall - a duo delighting in line

Marotte - a solo for a demented man

Orchidée - a solo for an exotic woman

Ekstatische - a duo for two priestly figures

Rosetten - a solo for a flirtatious woman

Bizarre - a comedy for two competitive men.

Dr. Valerie Preston-Dunlop, renowned authority on Rudolf-Laban's life and work, has researched and recreated these unique works, with dancers from Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, assisted by Alison Curtis-Jones and musician Robert Coleridge. She introduces each dance, describing their content and the process of their recreation.
