Biography

Aris Papadopoulos & Martha Pasakopoulou are professional dance artists with a background in Architecture and Chemistry respectively, working as a creative duo based in between Athens and London.

Previously performing for various choreographers and artists (Wally Cardona, Robert Clark, Eva Recacha, Andonis Foniadakis, David Dorfman, OKTANA Dancetheatre, Arbonauts, Tino Sehgal, Stefanos Tsivopoulos, Marina Abramovic, Flux Laboratory-Palais de Tokyo) they began working together in 2016 bringing their individual interests and aesthetics under a common discussion: constructed space, performer-viewer proximity, humour, absurdity and rhythm are used as open frames of work allowing for potentiality, variety of perception and creativity to lead their process and practices.

In 2017 Aris and Martha created and produced their first work ‘touching.just’. Currently they are researching their upcoming project 'Lucy. tutorial for a ritual' (working title) as artists in residency supported by Duncan Dance Research Center in Athens and GARAGE Performing Arts Centre, Corfu.
