The Great Tamer tickets are now available for Dimitris Papaioannou's Sadler's Wells debut.

Trained at the Athens School of Fine Arts, Dimitris Papaioannou draws on the Greek classics and his visual arts background in this investigation of life and death.

Inspired by the words of Homer and the work of the old masters, from El Greco to Rembrandt, Papaioannou builds macabre still lifes, dreamlike images and nightmarish creations with ten performers, his magical stagecraft and the shifting floor.

Papaioannou’s return to Dance Umbrella, following Primal Matter in 2016, marks his first work to be performed at Sadler’s Wells.
