about

lacrimal, 2016 /photo by Ioanna Chatziandreou



Born in Cyprus in 1988.

His work is generally inspired by human experiences related to violence and the oppression of the modern individual, with a sole purpose to transform them on stage into poetic abstract visuals of artistic integrity.
He seeks a language of movement with clean lines and strict forms that transpose ritualistic forms of dance and explore the major brain functions relating to the connecting space between the spectator and the performer.
