There are a number of organisations and individuals across the UK, Europe and beyond who hold archive materials produced by Rudolf Laban, his colleagues or pupils or which are in some way linked to Laban’s work. Some key organisations for these collections include the National Resource Centre for Dance (University of Surrey), Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, Leeds University, Tanzarchiv Leipzig and the Kunsthaus in Zurich. However, there are many more treasures held in other institutions or within personal collections.
This group would like to encourage not only those who hold collections to contribute but also any individual interested in exploring and discussing Laban\’s work through reference to archive sources.
