The enclosed LIMS Movement News 2012 was our first country-focused edition. It celebrated BRAZIL, where the Laban & Bartenieff work has been used, appreciated and developed. Brazil has more than 10 CMAs and LMA/BF is included in most Performing Arts schools and universities of the country. Since 2009, Rio de Janeiro pioneered in offering a LIMS' associated "Specialization Program in the Laban/Bartenieff System" at the Angel Vianna Dance College. The Program, designed and coordinated by senior CMA Regina Miranda (Class of 1975), has been drawing attention from all Spanish and Portuguese speaking countries. The Program also offers the opportunity for selected candidates to enter LIMS Certification Program at a later stage. Inside this edition, in addition to the work of CMAs, you will be able to appreciate the work of some of the Specialists who graduated from this Program, and also of professionals who graduated at LABAN, in London.
We changed Movement News format. It is currently online in a Blog format to facilitate and expand communication. Your collaboration will be welcomed! Please visit us at www.movementnews.net
Movement News is an annual online magazine that celebrates and promotes movement in all walks of life. It is specially relevant for those with an interest in movement as human beings’ primary language. The approach to the work is informed by embodied practice and personal involvement.
LIMS Movement News aims:
- To feature a wide spectrum of developments and applications of LMA/BF
- To keep a balance between presenting well-known and recent CMAs, Laban/Bartenieff Specialists, and graduates from other Programs around the world.
- To cover original work created both within the US and abroad.
We intend to alternate between more informal editions, with articles and news from several countries, and editions such as the current one, that focuses in the intellectual/practical production of one country. The next focused edition will present the production of FRANCE.
We are accepting proposals for 2013. Please send your proposal to Movement News Editor, Regina Miranda. Detailed information inside Movement News.
We hope you will enjoy this edition of LIMS® Movement News!
