What are Bartenieff fundamentals? by Abby Watterworth on Prezi
From Bartenieff we have the principles of movement, Laban’s common factors, on which to base our study of human motion. Sequencing and initiation, breath support, spatial intent, rotation, attitude and effort dynamicsand themes of expression-function, inner-outer, stability-mobility, exertion-recuperation support the Fundamentals.
In addition to those principles Bartenieff developed exercises for body awareness, changes in level, and means of locomotion.
These exercises are based on those common factors and principles, and can be accomplished — in some form — by almost everyone. The principles rely on basic, fundamental, themes and patterns of movement and are discernible by others and the self.
In developing the principles of Fundamentals, Bartenieff was concerned with support of the body to facilitate functional, expressive and efficient movement experiences. Irmgard kept multiple drafts of papers in loose-leaf and notebooks. Below are a few drafts of a Teaching Manual for Fundamentals, and the big question for her: Irmgard’s many notebooks offer a glimpse into the evolution of her thinking about the primary exercises that eventually became the Basic 6.
These pages from one notebook show a progression from kneeling to sitting, body half, and sagittal pelvic shift, and also provide thoughts on the ‘spaces’ of the spine ‘raumlagen’.
Irmgard firmly believed in Laban’s theories of Space — Choreutics — but she expanded on those theories to incorporate ideas put forward by Warren Lamb and Judith Kestenberg regarding shape and folded them into her ideas about what is fundamental in movement.
Listen to Irmgard speaking about Space.
Shape begins when we develop as babies, Shrinking and Growing as we explore both our bodies and space. The study of Shape, as bartenirff component of Bartenieff’s extension of Laban’s, Lamb’s, and Kestenberg’s theories, contains several aspects: To demonstrate these concepts Irmgard used photographs of ordinary people found in newspapers and magazines.
Below are three of those images from the collection of her papers. Wiesner Project Archivist for the Exhibit: Bartenifef Gallery Exhibit Graphic Design: We collect, serve, and preserve performing arts materials that document performance practice, instruction, and scholarship.
