24th Biennial Conference of ICKL

LABAN, London, United Kingdom
Dates: July 29-August 4, 2005
(Departure: August 5, 2005)

On-site organizers: Jean Jarrell

As one of Europe’s leading institutions for dance artist training and one of the world’s largest venues for contemporary dance, LABAN sets an exciting stage for the 2005 ICKL conference. Its new state-of-the-art facility won the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) Stirling Prize in 2003.
It is also particularly significant for ICKL to be hosted by LABAN, due to the common history of both organizations. ICKL was created at the initiative of Lisa Ullmann in 1959, and held its very first conference at the Laban Art of Movement Centre, now LABAN.

The 2005 ICKL conference will focus on making connections between the various Laban based systems using innovative and interdisciplinary methods as applied world-wide. Conference sessions will include papers, workshops and panel discussions exploring the practical, creative/educational and philosophical applications of Laban-based systems including, but not limited to Labanotation, Laban Movement Analysis, Motif Description, Choreutics and Dynamics, in areas such as movement research, dance documentation, technology, international cultural exchange, stylistic analysis, teaching, performance and directing.
