The Laban icosahedron is one of the most renowned physical structures in dance.

It is named after Rudolf Laban (1879 – 1958), who applied the five regular 3D objects to “harmonic” movement sequences, named “scales”.

The icosahedron, upon which Laban based his scales of movement upon, has been used in choreography as a framework for dance routines for many decades.

Mechanics of Movement is a live dance performance inspired by Laban movement analysis, with the icosahedron forms the focal point of the piece, with four performers explore the underlying principles of movement
