Creator of the Labanarium©
Dr Juliet Chambers-Coe (FHEA; GL-CMA) is a Certified Movement Analyst.
Juliet teaches Laban and movement studies at East 15 Acting School, London. She offers a supportive method of training performers and drama professionals in movement and is committed to understanding the ways in which artists and audiences experience the world through physical expression and being. She continues to be inspired by the possibilities of the moving human body, engaging in projects which explore the role of the body and human movement as a psychophysical, metaphysical, spiritual, and somatic phenomenon, in theatre and beyond. Juliet’s research specifically explores the intersections of Laban’s framework for movement analysis, ‘Movement Thinking’, spirituality, and Authentic Movement, in the context of actor training. Her particular focus is on training pedagogy and foregrounding the voice of the student, actor, mover, and artist. The Labanarium was conceived by Juliet as a way for practitioners, researchers, scholars, students, artists and anybody interested in human movement, to connect and share their activities and experiences in discovering the potential of the human moving.
Juliet created the ‘Excursions in Movement Thinking’ interactive resource, designed from her movement practice and research in mover-training pedagogy, and designed and created the personal Movement Scrapbook which can be accessed here or from the main menu.
