On today’s episode of ‘Conversations On Dance’, we are joined by choreographer, visual artist and experimental theater director Dimitris Papaioannou. Dimitris’ life as an artist began with a natural gift for visual arts at a very young age before eventually venturing into theater and dance. He founded his own company, Edofos Dance Theatre, leading to critical acclaim and a devoted fanbase. Dimitris talks to us about how his experience in a wide array of arts comes together to form his vision, his early years of creating art with few resources, and the difference between commercial and artistic endeavors as defined through his experience choreographing the opening and closing ceremonies at the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens. His latest work ‘Transverse Orientation’ has embarked on an ambitious tour that will have its final performances this coming December 9th and 10th at the Memorial Auditorium in Stanford, CA. Tickets can be purchased at live.stanford.edu.
