About the Show/Event
Information for Dimitris Papaioannou - Ink at Sadler's Wells Theatre, Inner London (Dance or ballet). Papaioannou first established an international reputation when he created the epic opening ceremony for the 2004 Athens Olympics. A director, choreographer, performer and visual artist, he has reached far beyond traditional art forms, taking storytelling to a new level. Papaioannou directed the Emmy Award winning Baku 2015 European Games Opening Ceremony. Dimitris Papaioannou performs in his latest work, INK. This hyper-visual dance theatre is a succession of dream images at breakneck speed. Enter an enigmatic water world in which a duet transforms into a duel under the influence of mythical primal forces. A man tries to bring order to his swamped universe: a fragile balancing act that only he can perform. Until a young visitor emerges from all that water. A nightmarish manhunt ensues, testing the limits of reality. Who is this intruder? Expect floods of water, a golden wheat field, an octopus, and sci-fi horror vibes. A true master of visual spectacle, his sell out runs at Sadler's Wells (The Great Tamer, Transverse Orientation) are a testament to his unique reputation. UK Premiere
Approximate runtime 1 hour 5 minutes (including any interval).
