Lemi Ponifasio

Euripides is a Greek stage director, short-filmmaker, performer and founder of Osmosis Performing Arts Co. His choreographic exploration is at the core of today’s demarcation between different forms of performing arts. His theatre background escalates strongly in his choreography which plays with themes of ridicule and transformation. Osmosis' latest work Relic, one of the pieces of the prestigious Aerowaves 2015 list, is currently touring major festivals and European venues. At the end of 2016 he will find himself close to choreographer Lemi Ponifasio in New Zealand, attend his company's rehearsals and observe closely the development of their new work.
