ABOUT THE COURSE
Contact Beyond Contact (CBC) integrates Authentic Movement (AM), Contact Improvisation (CI), Passing Through (PT) with profound practices and philosophies such as qigong, yoga, healing modalities, principles of behaviourism, mindfulness, leadership skills, Buddhism, Hinduism and Taoism and all human senses for a holistic integration of the body, mind, heart and spirit.
Dance is a social and integrative practice that connects people. We believe that everybody can dance so we created these open and all-inclusive dance and healing festival for people to truly connect with the self and others through dance.
This workshop will be focused on technical aspects of Contact Improvisation integrating energy work from qigong, breathing patterns to enhance reciprocal connection from within, and somatic exercises to create a full embodied practice.
CBC was created by Vangelis Legakis the founder and artistic director of Unity Space under which we create different festivals, projects, residencies and educational courses in dance and healing.
