RARE exposition of Eshkol-Wachman movement notation method - a notation system for recording movement on paper or computer screen, created in Israel by dance theorist Noa Eshkol and Avraham Wachman, a professor of architecture at the Technion. Originally developed for dance to enable choreographers to write a dance down on paper that dancers could later reconstruct in its entirety, much like composers writing a musical score for musicians to play, Eshkol-Wachman movement notation is intended to notate any manner of movement and is not limited to particular dance styles or even to the human form; it has been also used to analyze animal behavior, movements and forms of the hands and fingers in sign language, the composition of dances, the recording of folk dances and additionally has been used in the fields of medicine, the Feldenkrais Method and sports. Contains many diagrams and illustrations. 255x185mm. X+203 pages. Maroon cloth Hardcover with dust-jacket. Gilt lettering on spine. Jacket yellowing and somewhat stained/dirty. Jacket spine front hinge upper edge and rear side bottom corner torn. Jacket edges tattered. Cover curved. Bump-mark on rear cover bottom corner. Spine edges bumped. Text block edges slightly dirty. Pencil writing on front whitepage. [SUMMARY]: This extremely rare exposition of a revolutionary system used in many fields, including dance, physical therapy, animal behavior and early diagnosis of autism, is otherwise in good condition.
