Laban’s drawings express a theory of space created by movement of the human form within what he calls a ‘kinesphere’ – an abstract, dynamic body bubble. The range of motion of a stationary body defines the limits of this imaginary space. Haley re-diagrams the space to body relation by transforming the drawn lines into painted forms. The paintings are alternative documents of dance that can reanimate future movement of the body.
