Ι am Fotis Nikolaou, I am a choreographer and … still a dancer!
I am also the founder of X-it Dancetheatre which is based in Athens.
This time, right now I'm actually at Gate 3 waiting to fly to Sweden
where I will be working with the Gothenburg Opera for the choreography
of Elektra directed by Stephen Langridge. Hopefully, I will also be reworking
my latest project "These gentle hearts are like shot birds falling".
People and their emotions, help me find my inspiration…
anything that breaths and feels… anything that bears fears, desires,
uncertainty, imperfection, ambiguity… anything that is hidden, dark,
primitive and pagan and that will never be revealed or give you an answer
no matter how many experiments or research you do.
All those things for which you can only make speculations!
I don’t really know what does 'good' mean in art. I cannot even say what
it is but I can feel it when it happens, when I see it, when I experience it!
It moves me… in every sense.
ARROGANCE makes me angry. INJUSTICE, FANATICISM and some people…
cannot say names!!!
Absence, poetry, supreme love, make me cry.
Life takes my breath away
