Fanis Sakellariou is a performance artist, director, sound designer and writer. His artistic practice is in a dialogue with visual physical performance and post-dramatic theatre. Using as main themes the notion of Post-humanism and the transformative qualities of primal rituals, he explores the human condition and the possible links between the origin and the future of our species. Inspired by Antonin Artaud’s and Romeo Castellucci’s work, he aims towards the creation of artistic experiences, where the human is faced with concepts such as the sacred and the ineffable, which have greatly influenced the forming of societies and our relationship with the universe and the Others. He defines performance as a living argument, where all the elements communicate and have agency over each other. A being that breathes in front of the audience and attempts to restore the humans’ relationship with their bodies and the violence that defines contemporary life. He has produced work in performancs, theatre, installations and films across Athens, London, Berlin, Tokyo, Prague, Ancona, Canada and Israel. He studied at the University of the Arts London: Central Saint Martins (MA Performance Design & Practice – Distinction), East 15 Acting School London (BA Acting & Contemporary Theatre) and Empros Drama School Athens.
