Danai Pappa dancer

About

Danai Pappa is a dance artist who balances explosive dynamism with poise, grace, and humour. She synthesises her knowledge of archaeology, museum studies, body conditioning and dance into a performance language that is imagistic, precise, and poetic. She locates the intersection where myth, raw reality, clown, and contemporary dance meet and builds new worlds. Her work is possessed with gravity that is buoyed by effortless jouissance and unbridled play.
