THOMAS DIAFAS, WRITER AND PERFORMER

(1987), THESSALONIKI, GREECE

DANCE WITH ME

 Location: Second Floor Intervention Space

Thomas Diafas engages visitors in a metaphorical verbal “dance” of speech, expression and creation. Sat in a chair, the artist opens each conversation with visitors using the phrase “That is inhumane”. Jumbled words, responses, emotions — all are set down on paper, to be decoded later, transmuted into a structured work, transformed into poems, texts, songs that give meaning and form to ideas and thought.

Thomas Diafas is a writer, director and performer. He uses art to aim at some kind of revolution. He has shown his work in several countries worldwide. He hopes to be fed only with poetry when he grows up. He lives and works in Athens.
