Michael Theophanous + Dimitris Papaioannou
The motif of a body wrestling with its own image can be traced throughout Dimitris Papaioannou’s creative output, right back to his beginnings in 1986. With Primal Matter (2012), he chooses to go back to basics at a critical moment in time, with this embodied work cutting across a traumatised sense of national identity in Greece today: the body nude and dressed, silent and dismembered, the body as a battlefield in a dialogue between history and the present, walking the line between identity and otherness. This multi-talented artist returns to the stage as a performer alongside his new co-lead in a rawer version of the work that is also richer from the experiences of the past year.
