Painting, circus, comedy, costumes, sets, lights… nothing escapes the overflowing talent of Dimitris Papaioannou.
After The Great Tamer, which received a standing ovation at the Festival d’Avignon in 2017, he established himself as a theatre prodigy with Since She, the first large-scale piece created by a guest choreographer with the Tanztheater Wuppertal company, presented by the Théâtre de la Ville in La Villette in July 2019.
