Panopticon 360: Vasiliki Papapostolou 

Invited by the artist and animating the new exhibition by Andrew Pierre Hart, dancer Vasiliki Papapostolou (a.k.a Tarantism) presents her latest performance work Panopticon 360. This conceptual dance piece explores the ways we internalise surveillance, managing ourselves, our bodies and behaviours. Oscillating between control and the loss of control, the movement draws on a wide range of practices from physical theatre, contemporary dance and Ballroom Latin to movement concepts from street dance styles.

Music Composer /Sound Designer: Christopher Nas. Videographer: Klaus Shehaj.

Join us for this free, drop-in performance at 2pm and repeated at 4pm. Performances last for 20 minutes.

Capacity is limited so please arrive early to avoid disappointment.

About Vasiliki Papapostolou

Vasiliki Papapostolou (a.k.a Tarantism) is an experimental dance artist interested in exploring how body and mind are interconnected. She researches how entering the “flow zone” in dance can become a tool for creativity, self-expression and freedom and she highlights “dancing” as a “dynamic process”, rather than a finished definite “product”. Her hybrid movement language incorporates contemporary dance, ballroom Latin and movement concepts from street dance styles.

As a dancer, her credits include performing with Edifice Dance Theatre (UK), Teatro Regio Torino (Italy), Pottporus: Company Renegade (Germany), Taira Foo Dance Company (UK), Open Art Surgery (Sadlers Wells,UK). As a choreographer, she has showcased her work at TEDx Panteion University (Greece), The Place (UK), Block 336 – ICF (London), Zichri Theater (Israel), Jersey City Theatre Centre (online event, USA). She has been invited to judge international competitions such as KRE8 Lab (UK), Percorsi Coreografici (Italy) and Torre del Lago Dancing Time (Italy).
