Dimitris Papaioannou: Transverse Orientation
December 9 @ 7:30 pm
One event on December 10, 2022 at 7:30 pm
Stanford Live has joined an international consortium to commission the latest creation by groundbreaking Greek director, choreographer, and visual artist Dimitris Papaioannou, whose work ranges from experimental theater to the opening and closing ceremonies for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.
A true master of visual spectacle, his epic, evening-length works combine movement, music, and elaborate stage imagery in enigmatic but powerfully moving ways. Taking inspiration from the natural behavior of moths to seek light, Transverse Orientation follows the human compulsion to find meaning on the journey, andmakes its North American premiere at Stanford Live.
