The Great Tamer displays the idea that human life can be seen as a journey of discovery, an exploration for hidden treasure, an inner archaeological excavation for meaning.


For nearly 3 decades, Dimitris Papaioannou has been staging new worlds described as a dreamlike absurd circus. Human bodies become battlegrounds, interacting with raw materials, fusing into hybrids, giving rise to optical illusions that make his work outstanding.
Papaioannou’s education as classical painter in fine arts gives his performances a strong visual feel, spectacular scenery, and memorable visuals. The talented Greek artist juggles with art history references, various practices of expression and performing, and ideas about our origins. His aim is to shed light on the sacred in the mundane.
