Workshop: The Harmonics of Polarities 
Following the success of the popular workshop Dynamic Boundaries through LBMS attended by nearly 100 participants at International Symposium of LBMS in April, Brenton is going to offer a second workshop to the Chinese and international LBMS community. Within LBMS there exist many important concepts expressed as polarities, such as Exertion-Recuperation, Function-Expression, and Stability-Mobility. Frequently polarities are seen as mutually exclusive opposites. However, Laban appreciated the rhythmic flow between polarities as one aspect of what he considered “harmony”. This experiential workshop will explore a number key polarities within LBMS as well as how to approach working with them. . Read more
