"Laban movement analysis provides a rich overview of the scope of movement possibilities. These basic elements can be used for generating movement or for describing movement. They provide an inroad to understanding movement and for developing movement efficiency and expressiveness. Each human being combines these movement factors in his/her own unique way and organizes them to create phrases and relationships which reveal personal, artistic, or cultural style." (Peggy Hackney, Making Connections)
The viewpoints technique focuses the actors' awareness and creates a vocabulary for responding and acting with movement and gesture.
