Christos Papadopoulos

ION

Dance

Christos Papadopoulos is a young and very promising Greek choreographer who’s making waves on the international scene.

In a seemingly random but precisely orchestrated choreography, ten dancers slowly but surely, almost unnoticeably, drift away. Ion breaks away from the spectacular to create a form of poetry free from the usual narrative process. It’s a journey for the free. Free like migratory birds, bees’ dances, the movement of clouds. Ion is the dance of the primitive life before there was meaning. It’s an invitation to let ourselves go to an experience of pure serenity.
