  • Few stage-shows nowadays have such power as those made by Dimitris Papaioannou

    "His use of human bodies as evocative battlefields
    illustrating history and contemporaneity is fantastic,
    in an incessant mingling of performers and primal materials"

    "Seit Sie manages to tune into the DNA of the Tanztheater
    while remaining one of a piece with the figure of the Greek author.
    It is a subtle miracle."

    Leonetta Bentivoglio, La Repubblica, 18 May 2018
    original article, translation


    Papaioannou has been perfectly successful in his challenge. A show like a sweet journey to the depths, to find cheerful and alive, Pina Bausch herself.

    "Saturday night, the deep dark world of the Greek choreographer  turned into a magnificent tribute to Pina Bausch, tinted with novelties and sublimated by the dancers. The audience hailed the performance with enthusiasm."

    Guy Duplat, Lalibre.be, 13 May 2018

    “His piece is a meditation on human existence. All the struggles and desires, the ceaseless trying and failing - Papaioannou tells of it by opening an echo chamber with numerous references to art history. At times his choreography even hypnotically draws you in. The dancers are fantastic, even fleeting scenes are filled with their strong presence.”
