1. PRIMAL MATTER
    (in perspective)

    special edition for the
    TEATRO OLIMPICO
    Vicenza, Italy
    2015

    with MICHALIS THEOPHANOUS & DIMITRIS PAPAIOANNOU

    CRITICAL RECEPTION

    The ancient "kalos kagathos" ideal is revived in the work Papaioannou.
    —SILVIA POLETTI, delteatro.it

    As if by magic, the reciprocal exchanges of these two bodies heighten the audience’s awareness of being part of the multitude; because we are all flesh. …The reference to, and criticism of the contemporary is both poetic and heart-breaking. …The fame Dimitris Papaioannou gained for his direction of the spectacular Opening Ceremony of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games cannot eclipse the achievements of his stunning artistic career.
    —BARBARA CODOGNO, Corriere Del Veneto

    Dimitris Papaioannou and Michalis Theophanous proved themselves Olympians in every sense of the word. Looking at them—and without a word—you realise why Europe, and Western culture were born in Athens. It is a birthplace, a memory, that our identity cannot forget.
    —LORENZO PAROLIN, Il Giornale di Vicenza

    The moment where the ancient being is hoisted up onto the legs of the contemporary inevitably brings to mind the current social and political realities of Greece, and the fractured identity of its people. It is a moment of poignant beauty.
    —FERNANDO MARCHIORI, Ateatro

    Physical and spiritual osmosis. …Papaioannou’s deeply expressive nature, and the intensity of his amazing talents, are revealed in his profound performances, as in the case of PRIMAL MATTER.
    —GIUSEPPE DISTEFANO, sole24ore.com

    The body between the sacred and the profane. …PRIMAL MATTER was beautifully suited to the difficult stage of the Teatro Olimpico, and was so greatly enjoyed here that one can only hope for its swift return. …The work is open to infinite possibilities of interpretation. …Papaioannou is the first artist of the contemporary Greek dance scene to have turned to his country’s glorious and remote past in order reclaim his own culture.
    —MARINELLA GUATTERINI, il Sole 24 Ore

    ANDREA PALLADIO, the iconic Rennaissance architect, died in 1580. The TEATRO OLIMPICO was his final design, completed five years after his death. The original trompe l’oeil scenery was designed by VINCENZO SCAMOZZI. It is the oldest surviving stage set in the world. PRIMAL MATTER was the first contemporary physical performance to be presented on this historic stage, over two nights in October 2015.

  5. Toronto Skyline Porn is what its title implies -- a full frontal visual journey through Toronto's growing skyline. The scenes were shot over the past few years from different heights and in different seasons.

    Ive enjoyed showcasing Toronto in the past in a more warmhearted tone but with the evolution of the city over the last 4 years I figured a skyline short was fitting.
