The International Council of Kinetography Laban was founded in England in 1959 and has about one hundred active members and fellows from more than twenty-five countries around the world.

Its members practice the system of movement and dance notation originated by Rudolf Laban, known as Kinetography Laban or Labanotation. This system is one of the major method of movement notation used in the documentation of, education about, and research into, human movement.

The aims of ICKL are to promote the use of the system; to increase research for its development and application; to act as a deciding body with regard to the orthography and principles of the system; to support experimental projects in related areas; to encourage information exchange among centers and individuals using the system. Its activities include the organization of a biennial conference and the publication of the conference proceedings.



The 32nd conference of the International Council of Kinetography Laban /Labanotation will be held July 17-23, 2022 (arrival Sunday July 17 / departure Sunday July 24) at Magyar Táncművészeti Egyetem [Hungarian Dance University], Budapest, Hungary.
