Andonis Foniadakis is a choreographer who enjoys an international reputation and has worked with major dance troupes, as well as founding his own ensemble.  In his new work, Wisteria Maiden, he draws inspiration from the Japanese theatre and creates a kinetic and visual world rich in imagination, in which the human body is seen as full of energy, power and sensuality. The power of expression and precision of gesture, together with the concept of metamorphosis, are the key elements in an iconography which seems to offer us an alternative vision of nature.
