Dimitris Papaioannou

Dimitris Papaioannou is a Greek performer/visual artist/choreographer/director (he made the opening ceremony for the Olympics in Athens in 2004)

this video is a selection of scenes from some of his projects over the last 10 years, showing plenty of overdesigned sets populated by naked dancers, some football and Dimitris himself sporting an excellent moustache.

in amongst the spectacular crowd-pleasers, there are some great images – i don’t think anybody can fail to be impressed by the linked forearm angel undressing scenes.

now i see what’s happened to the Greek economy in recent history. Dimitris has spent all their money on his shows. going out in style.

About john

creative factotum based in northern Finland. exactly one half of a company that fuses technology with the moving body to make dance work. i use cameras and computers and projectors and lights and sound to make magic spaces for people to dance in. and i don't much care for capital letters.
