VANGELIS DANCE COMPANY

For many years, we’ve provided the public with a wide range of theatre shows and performances, gallery installations and site specific productions.

We create and choreograph performances for other companies. We are looking forward to connecting with you for future productions.

 

OUR MISSION

Engaging With Local and International Communities

The Vangelis Dance Company was born out of a desire to entertain and educate diverse communities with exclusive shows and performances meant to inspire and proffer food-for-thought for what is dance and choreography in the 21st Century. Since 2008, we’ve engaged with local and international communities by providing emerging artists with opportunities to participate in our productions.

The Vangelis Dance Company encompasses a wide range of movement languages (Flying Low & Passing Through, Contact Improvisation, Release, Experiential Anatomy, Laban and Bartenieff Fundamentals), improvisation and choreographic methodologies which we integrate with the philosophies of chi gong and yoga so as to unearth a unique movement language that challenges the viewer, the performer and the choreographer. 

Our productions have been presented across the world in UK, Belgium, Denmark, Sweden, Greece, Argentina, Chile, India, Thailand, China - Mainland, Hong Kong, Taiwan and Australia.

WHO WE ARE

The Artistic Director of The Vangelis Dance Company, Vangelis Legakis, believes that dance can unite all communities of any background, age, gender and profession. Dance is Life and Life is a Dance. His dance language and choreographies aim to provide the communities with a series of state-of-the-art shows and performances that truly make an impact in social and human levels. 

The company recruits performers according to the project, country and performance venue so as to continue give opportunities to artists across the world. 

 

The Company

HISTORY

The Vangelis Dance Company was established in 2008 in London - UK. The productions we create are inspired by observing and experiencing the world we are living in, and through honest and truthful feelings we aim to inspire and stimulate our audiences with a sense of artistic wonder.

Our long year research on movement language, choreography as well as on sociopolitical concerns, psychology, neuroscience and philosophical values, enrich our subject matter to present state-of-the-art productions to audiences of all cultures.

UPCOMING PROJECTS

Unleashing the Artist in You

Vangelis Legakis under his trademarked holistic practice "Embodied Unity" is creating international projects and festivals that are accessible to artists and non artists. The incentive is to create the right environment with the right conditions for self development in dance and life.

 

PADHA 1 YEAR PROGRAM

01  March 2021
Athens, HK, KL, Bali

The PADHA Program  is designed by Unity Space for the dance artists who seek to further develop their professional dance career. Dance artists will have the profound opportunity to delve deeper in different movement styles, somatics, embodiment, healing and spiritual practices to achieve high standards of dance and performance and become a pioneer of the 21st Century dance industry.

NO BORDERS PROJECT

19 December 2020 - 6 January 2021
ATHENS - GREECE

The No Borders project aims to bridge encounters between dance, music, photography, film, sculpture, conceptual arts and philosophy to create an environment for free expression and creation. The collaborators-participants will focus on channeling their emotions to express themselves by researching and reflecting on the subject matters of borders, identity and cross-cultural communication to identify, eliminate, and within such a collective context, go beyond their own individual limits.

“To understand what I am saying, you have to believe that dance is something other than technique. We forget where the movements come from. They are born from life. When you create a new work, the point of departure must be contemporary life -- not existing forms of dance."
