EAST POINT WEST | Interdisciplinary Festival of Embodiment
A meeting point of East & West
KUALA LUMPUR 4-14 July 2018
Have you ever thought to be part of a festival where diverse art forms such as dance, painting, film, healing & therapeutic modalities, yoga, chi gong as well as martial arts can be part of the experience? Sometimes we tend to keep doing in our lives without having a minute to reflect within. The integration of Eastern and Western philosophies and modalities can allow space and time to reflect, question, breathe, find new pathways in our career and life and take right actions.
Unity Space presents East Point West – IFE, a one-of-a-kind festival where you can experience diverse disciplines from across the world to find integration, unity and evolution in your art form as well as in life.

During the festival the participants have the choice to join two daily movement workshops titled “elective workshops” and one creative workshop titled “performance workshop”. The performance workshops in the end of the festival will culminate into a public performance as part of the DPAC Arts Festival on the 14th of July.

Extra Information can be found:
We wish to offer new pathways in dance and life by integrating eastern with western philosophies and traditions. Our era at the current time is bombarded by so much information that is hard to grasp. The festival aims to offer the opportunity and the right environment for integration to happen. The Artistic Director of the festival, Vangelis Legakis, is organising, teaching and spreading interdisciplinary-integrative projects and festivals across the world to create and offer the opportunity to transform and integrate our life with dance itself. Together with Hoh May Yee, Anni Taskula, Miku Tsuchiya and Jason Michael Yap we are looking forward to welcoming you for this unique experience ♥
