...in distant vision. Mr. Kreutzberg—with Miss Georgi not too far behind—is full-furnished exemplar of this new liberty and abundance. His body is the ready, manifold servant of imagination and will. It takes, on the instant, any contour that he desires, be it curve or angle, perpendicular or diagonal; weaves itself into intricate patterns; vibrates to rhythm and counter-rhythm; defines the long line; snaps out the short phrase; runs a gamut of intensities and shadings.(Taylor, 1982, p. 202) Kreutzberg's joint dance evenings with Georgi ended at the Berlin State...

...that radiate from the center of the upright body. Directions are associated with two states of equilibrium, the stable and the mobile or labile. Dimensional directions are predominantly stable owing to the balancing of the body mass around the center of weight and its perpendicular relationship to the support. Diagonal directions move the body center out of the vertical alignment over the support and thus promote lability or mobility. (Laban used the term lability in his German writings and mobility in the English books.) Spatial Scales and Rings By...

...of the feet, torso, head and eyes, arms, and hands and fingers as well as the removal of the gentleman's hat were explained in elaborate detail. A gentleman did not bow his head but kept it in line with the body, and a lady was instructed to keep her body as well as her head perpendicular. The eyes for both were directed toward the person honored, for “what looks worse, when respect is meant to be conveyed, than to present the hair of the head” (Saltator, 1802, p. 69). The arms were to hang down naturally and without stiffness, the hands somewhat bent, and the...

...that they twirl over and around their heads as they dance; and the Drum Dance, in which the performer dances before a large round drum struck at certain intervals during the dance. Perhaps the most notable characteristic of Buddhist ritual dance is the position of the feet—perpendicular to each other, with the heel of the left foot raised slightly and touching the right between the instep and ankle joint. At the same time, the knees are bent as in a plié . This posture occurs in no other type of Korean traditional dance. It is assumed at the start of the...

...took a solid, although by now traditional, book about sordid backstage manipulations and a score that effectively re‐created the black musical styles of the 1960s and turned it all into a dazzling piece of entertainment.
