The Van-L Dance Company
Artistic Director: Vangelis Legakis
Engaging With Local and International Communities
The Van-L 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 Van – L 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.
