Dimitris Papaioannou

Dimitris Papaioannou is a genius of performing arts. It’s one of those cases that if I start describing his work, you’ll exclaim “Ah! That’s him!”. And you admire him!

Although you can read details about his impressive CV on Wikipedia and his personal website, I’ll tell you a few things in my own words; Dimitris Papaioannou is a Greek artist, who studied Fine Arts in Athens, began his career as a visual artist and comic book creator and became internationally acclaimed. Meanwhile he was fond of dancing and he was trained as a dance performer in New York. Since then he created marvellous performances worldwide. His best known work, is as Creative Director of the Opening Ceremony of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games. Ah! Now you know what I’m talking about!

His latest play is a dance theatre performance in Athens & Epidaurus Festival called “Primal Matter”, where he’s performing along with Michael Theophanous. A nude man and a dressed one, both trying to balance on stage concepts of identity, time and unity. Papaioannou has become a master of narrating through human bodies. There is an almost architectural approach in which his characters relate to each other. You have the chance to see “Primal Matter” during your vacation in Greece this summer.

Dimitris Papaioannou was generous enough to send me a translated in English version of his comic “Heart-shaped Earth” which was published in 1993 on Greek comic magazine Babel. “Heart-shaped Earth” is the story of a man and the lovers he meets on his travels around the globe.

You can enjoy the clip of “Primal Matter” and the “Heart-shaped Earth” comic, here. You might need to watch/read again these works, just in case you lose your focus. I’m just saying! :)
