The Great Tamer takes shape around the notion that human life can be seen as a journey of discovery, an exploration for hidden treasure, an inner archaeological excavation for meaning.
In such a quest, body faces matter as well as it becomes a hybrid subject of optical illusions. The stage becomes an absurd circus with dreams as a conductor line. Human bodies become battlegrounds, interacting with raw materials, fusing into hybrids, giving rise to optical illusions.
Dimitris Papaioannou doesn't hesitate to challenge his performers to find their balance on an inflated stage constantly going through a process of deconstruction, swelling up, absorption, and even rejection. Dimitris Papaioannou aims at an utter simplicity of appearance that is far from simple to achieve. His rootedness in the fine arts gives his performances a strong visual feel, as he juggles teasingly with art-historical references, and ideas about our origins. His intention is to shed light on the sacred in the mundane.
