Trained at the Athens School of Fine Arts, Dimitris Papaioannou draws on the Greek classics and his visual arts background in this investigation of life and death.

Running from: Tue 16 - Wed 17 Oct.

Inspired by the words of Homer and the work of the old masters, from El Greco to Rembrandt, Papaioannou builds macabre still lifes, dreamlike images and nightmarish creations with ten performers, his magical stagecraft and the shifting floor.

An artist whose work spans theatre, dance and film Papaioannou first attracted recognition for directing the ceremonies of the 2004 Olympics. This internationally acclaimed work marks his debut at Sadler’s Wells.
