Summary
"Die grünen Clowns (1928) responds to dehumanising aspects of modernity following the 1st World War. Rooted in Expressionism and drawing on aspects of Dada, Rudolf Laban's radical and challenging approach to movement and dance-theatre involved improvisation with an emphasis on the corporeality of the dancers and their experience in the creative process. This documentary follows the re-creation of this work as 'Green clowns 2008' with students at Trinity Laban, the UK's first conservatoire of music and dance. The staging, by Alison Curtis-Jones, draws on source materials and processes originally researched and developed by Dr Valerie Preston-Dunlop who worked with Laban for many years and is a leading authority on his life and work. Featuring discussions with Valerie Preston-Dunlop, Alison Curtis-Jones and historian Ramsay Burt and with rehearsal, class and performance footage, this documentary offers insights into Rudolf Laben's theatre work in its historical and artistic context, his choreographic method, and into the value of recreation as a teaching tool in the performaing arts"--Container
