Christodoulos Panayiotou

Born in 1978 at Limassol, Chypre

Christodoulos Panayiotou practices his art as an anthropologist: in his multifaceted work, he uses research methods as well as choreographic approaches. He examines the way in which cultural and national identities have been constructed in relation to collective myths, thus embracing historiographical and sociological themes. His thoughts on contemporary society and its relationship with the past and with history are often based on his native country, Cyprus.

Born in 1978 in Limassol, Christodoulos Panayiotou studied performing arts (with a major in dance) at the Université Lumière-Lyon 2 and at the University of Surrey in Roehampton-London. In 2015, he was chosen to represent Cyprus at the 56th Venice Biennale. He lives and works between Limassol and Paris (France).
