Larsen C: a work of art in movement inspired by the slowness of melting glaciers in order to speak of the fierceness of life.

“Glacier” or “ice shelf”. This is the scientific name of the enormous, 10,000-year-old immobile body of Larsen C water in Antarctica. Larsen C, twice the size of Wales, moves so slowly that it cannot be detected by the human senses. It is as if the pulse of its movement were absorbed by space and time. In Christos Papadopoulos’ namesake choreography, human bodies resonate to the same perpetual rhythm, in a dreamlike sequence where they progressively appear as eerie as the polar landscape. Christos Papadopoulos becomes, yet again, an observer of the movement of the minimum which, in its interiority and repetition, produces life. Larsen C is a party in homage to the silent transition of bodies. It is “a metaphor”, as the choreographer himself states, “of life that goes on invincible.”

Christos Papadopoulos studied Dance and Choreography at SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam, Theatre at the Drama School of Greece’s National Theatre, and Political Sciences in Athens. He is a founding member of the dance group The Lion and the Wolf. His first works, Opus and Elvedon, received critical acclaim when presented at the Porta Theatre in Greece. Elvedon was the first choice of Aerowaves 2016 and was later presented in Paris, Amsterdam, and other European cities. Opus was chosen by Aerowaves 2018, and soon after began its international tour. Ion (2018), commissioned by Onassis Stegi and co-produced by Théâtre de la Ville, Paris, and Le Lieu Unique, Nantes, continues to tour successfully. Larsen C (2021), an international co-production, has already been presented to more than 25 venues and festivals across Europe. In 2023, he created the work Mellowing for the prestigious dance company Dance On and, later on, Mycelium for the Lyon Opera Ballet and the Biennale de la Danse Lyon. These works are touring worldwide. In June, Christos Papadopoulos will present a solo piece for Georgios Kotsifakis – LAC Lugano Arte e Cultura and, in September 2024, a new work for NDT 1. In May 2025, his new project will premiere at Onassis Stegi, in Athens.
