ONASSIS STEGI / ATHENS

Transverse orientation

Thesecond international co-production of the Onassis Stegi with Dimitris Papaioannou, co-produced by more than 20 major international venues and institutions, is presented from December 22nd 2021 to January 16th 2022.

Dimitris Papaioannou has garnered rapturous acclaim in the first international press reviews for his new ONASSIS STEGI production: “If Michelangelo had been active in this era, would he not have left such a work?” wonders the Korean “auditorium.kr”; “A jewel, of ingenuity and of beauty,” writes the French “Le Progrès”; “A long act of artistic magic created before our eyes by the superbly precise performers,” notes the “NEW YORK Times”. This December at ONASSIS STEGI, the curtain will rise on “Transverse Orientation”, a work set to dazzle us all once more.

Each new work that Papaioannou creates is something you want to experience. Because “Papaioannou is without doubt one of the four most important choreographers in the world,” as noted by “Le Figaro” in June 2021. His images, movements, and sounds launch us towards the source of life and of creation, of imagination and play, and call on us to discover our own truths, closer to the light. Transverse orientation is the method by which insects keep a fixed angle on a distant source of light for orientation – this is why they fly towards all that shines.
