The world-famous choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou will return to Plovdiv on 13, 14, 15 and 16 May 2021 with one of the biggest productions in the history of dance art.
Following the grandiose worldwide success of THE GREAT TAMER, which has toured all continents and been presented at ONE DANCE WEEK 2018, Dimitris Papaioannou, the star of the international dance scene, will create his largest performance to date.
Born in Athens in 1964, Dimitris Papaioannou gained early recognition as a painter and comics artist, before his focus shifted to the performing arts, as director, choreographer, performer, and designer of sets, costumes, make up, and lighting. He was a student of the iconic Greek painter Yannis Tsarouchis. For 17 years he created original stage productions, hybrids of physical theatre, experimental dance, and performance art in his Edafos Dance Theatre.
Papaioannou became widely known as the creator of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the Athens Olympic Games (2004) and the first European Games in Baku (2015). He is actively directing avant-garde productions for big theaters in Greece and Europe.
