Choreographer and Performer
Nineteen-year-old Yiannis Tsakalos was trained by teachers throughout the world in various dance styles. He was a dancer for the Spanish Dance Society for seven years and for the Greek National Opera for two years.
“Genesis is my first piece presented internationally. It gives me the opportunity to work with new perspectives and innovative tools, as I am performing in front of a non-Greek audience. I try to explore new ways of moving, expressing myself and connecting from the beginning. First, I improvise trying to reach the deepest parts of my human subconscious, and then my improvisation and choreography are guided by the connection that is created between me and the people watching the piece.”
