Three years after his debut at Sadler’s Wells with the Olivier-nominated The Great Tamer, Dimitris Papaioannou summons an entirely distinctive universe once more for his latest work.

21 - 23 Oct 2021

A true master of visual spectacle, the Greek artist explores existential themes, mining mythology and art history to conjure vivid and often humorous imagery. Taking inspiration from the natural behaviour of moths to seek light, Transverse Orientation follows the human compulsion to find meaning on the journey of life.

With a background in fine arts, Papaioannou’s creations blur theatre, experimental choreography and live performance to transform bodies and objects by illusion. Coming to international prominence following his direction of the 2004 Olympic ceremonies in Athens, his work has been seen by audiences across the world.

Transverse Orientation contains nudity.

Co-commissioned by Dance Umbrella and Sadler’s Wells.
