Rudolf Laban
b. 1879; Pozsony, Kingdom of Hungary, Austro-Hungarian Empire
d. 1958; Weybridge, England

Rudolf Laban was a visionary, mystic, lover, leader, dancer, artist, teacher, and theorist. This is the story of his extraordinary life, a life intimately bound up with the political, social and cultural upheavals that formed the turbulent backdrop of modern Europe.

He witnessed the dissolution of the old order and was caught up in the rise of Nazism from which he was eventually forced to flee to Britain. He made his lasting impact in movement and dance, uncovering the interconnectedness of the body and the psyche, the individual and the group; and he devised a revolutionary method of movement notation that continues its use and influence today. His ideas have generated innovations, not just in dance, but also in acting and performance, in the study of nonverbal communication, in ergonomics, in educational theory and child development, in personality assessment and psychotherapy. This book tells the story of his life of idealism, disillusion and determination. (book description)

Tom Lehrer
b. 4-9-1928; NYC, NY

Tom Lehrer, a Harvard mathematics professor by day, is also among the foremost song satirists with vicious, twisted parodies of popular musical trends which proved highly influential on the “sick comedy” revolution of the 1960s.

One of Lehrer's best remembered “numbers” is “The Elements” where he sets the names of the chemical elements to the tune of the “Major-General's Song” from Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance.
