ARIS PAPADOPOULOS / MARTHA PASAKOPOULOU_ touching.just
Aris Papadopoulos & Martha Pasakopoulou are professional dance artists from Athens, Greece. For the past years they have been performing individually for various choreographers and artists, such as Wally Cardona, Robert Clark, Eva Recacha, Andonis Foniadakis, OKTANA Dance Theatre, Arbonauts, Tino Sehgal, Marina Abramovic, Stefanos Tsivopoulos, David Dorfman, Flux Laboratory-Palais de Tokyo, Jannis Varelas, Michael Klien, to name a few, shifting between theatres, museums, galleries and outdoors spaces.
In 2016 they started working together bringing their individual interests and aesthetics into a common discussion: constructed space, performer-viewer proximity, humor, absurdity and rhythm are notions of their interests. They focus in more open forms of working which allow for a space of potentiality, variety of perception and limitless creativity to occur.
In 2017 they created their first work touching.just and are currently researching on their upcoming project.
