Contact Beyond Contact
Contact Beyond Contact (CBC), is a dance and healing practice originally created by Vangelis Legakis, the founder and artistic director of Unity Space – an Arts and Healing Organisation based in Hong Kong. CBC is an accumulation of Vangelis’ wealth of experience and research into different movement practices and healing modalities.
Contact Beyond Contact (CBC) is a dance and healing practice that integrates Authentic Movement (AM), Contact Improvisation (CI) and Passing Through (PT) with profound practices of qigong, yoga, healing modalities and energy work, mindfulness and leadership skills, proprioceptive and exteroceptive senses, somatics and principles of behaviorism, as well as the philosophies of Buddhism and Taoism. These practices are well-woven together to create a holistic integration of the Body, Mind, Heart and Spirit. The facilitator’s main focus in this practice is to hold space by creating a safe-boundaries-environment in which people can integrate, transform and heal in body, mind, heart and spirit.
CBC provides a safe container where each individual is able to express, trust and transform by honouring their personal boundaries and the boundaries of others. This practice will allow you to genuinely, energetically connect with yourself, an-other, the space you are working in and with nature; the world beyond the means of physical contact.
Who are CBC sessions for?
CBC sessions are open to all – whether you are an experienced dance practitioner/ healer or a complete beginner to dance, holistic and spiritual practices – CBC welcomes you to experience and practice. The sessions offer you a non-judgmental space to discover and deepen your relationship within yourself, with others and the world around you. The skills and tools are all inclusive and take each individual into account, making it a practice available for all bodies and people of varying professional, cultural and religious backgrounds.
