Aris Papadopoulos & Martha Pasakopoulou - dance makers

 

We are professional dance artists and dance-makers from Athens-Greece with a background in Architecture and Chemistry respectively. Previously performing for various choreographers and artists, we began working together in 2016 bringing our individual interests and aesthetics into a common discussion: constructed space, performer-viewer proximity, humor, absurdity and rhythm are used as open frames of work allowing for potentiality, variety of perception and creativity to take over. Our work is found in the crossroads between dance, performance and installation in the process of which timing and manipulation of time takes a leading role.

 

 

Currently we are researching on and developing our upcoming project Lucy. tutorial for a ritual kindly supported by Duncan Dance Research Center  (Athens), Garage Performing Arts Center (Corfu) and KLAP Maison pour la danse (Marseille). The creation and production of the new work is funded by the Hellenic Ministry of Culture and Sports (2018-19).
