TICKET INFORMATION
Transverse Orientation
Nov 7—Nov 11, 2022
Dance | Theater

US Premiere

Conceived and directed by Dimitris Papaioannou

 

Evoking myth and religion, the newest creation by Greek director-choreographer Dimitris Papaioannou dazzles with meticulous craft, imaginative play, and visual intensity. Like The Great Tamer, his internationally acclaimed, Next Wave 2019 sold-out sensation, Transverse Orientation induces awe on a massive scale, set to the music of Vivaldi. With dreamlike, painterly composition—and the rendering of a bull, in all of its lifelike power—it will make you wonder what’s real. Papaioannou—one of the first choreographers to create new work for Pina Bausch’s Tanztheater Wuppertal in 45 years—exacts striking formal language, along with the best of experimental theater art.

Note: This show contains nudity and may not be appropriate for children.

“Dimitris Papaioannou, a master of contradictions. He’ll create sublime tableaux and then puncture the moment with absurdity; and cross beauty with disgust, wonder and comedy.”
— The Guardian
“Like all of Papaioannou’s pieces, it’s a meticulously crafted, intensely visual experience.”
— The New York Times
“Transverse Orientation demonstrates yet again what a masterful theatrical magician and imagist Papaioannou is.”
— The Times (UK)
