Pre-occupied with ideas about transformation and ridicule he tests our acceptance of the incongruous and unfamiliar to the limit.
Teasing and surprising, he conjures magic from the mundane in a strikingly eccentric vaudeville and cabaret world.
Trained in Athens and New York, Euripides Laskaridis is a director, choreographer, performer, and award-winning film-maker. In 2016 he was awarded a Pina Bausch Fellowship. Relic has been seen at many major European festivals including Lyon Bienniale de la Danse, Zurich Theaterspektakel, Dublin Dance Festival and the Prague Quadrennial.
Transcendent, unflinching and memorable.
"Reflecting perceptions and changes to Greek society through the state’s financial collapse, Laskaridis uses comedy, vaudeville and a slapstick that manages to swipe at many issues around bodies, gender and conformity" Irish Times (Dublin Dance Festival)
