Dimitris Papaioannou
Throughout his thirty plus years of work as an artist, performer, comics creator, choreographer, director, and exhibition curator, Dimitris Papaioannou has always been one step ahead. The legendary Edafos Dance Theater, which he founded with Angeliki Stellatou, caused a stir in the Greek dance scene during the 1980s and ’90s.

After that – riding the wave of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games and its acclaimed Opening and Closing Ceremonies, which he oversaw as creative director – Papaioannou broke new ground with performances that attracted audiences in numbers near unprecedented for contemporary dance. His return to a more pared-back aesthetic with the works Primal Matter and Still Life marked his arrival onto the international scene. He was the first international artist to be invited to choreograph for the legendary Pina Bausch Company, creating Since She.
