Eleven years after the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, Dimitris Papaioannou came back in the world of ceremonies, again conceiving and directing the Opening Ceremony of the 1st ever European Games that took place in Baku Azerbaijan in June 2015. Once again he left speechless not just the thousands of spectators in the National stadium of Baku but also the millions of TV viewers around the world for this incredible piece of art. Nikos had the privilege of being one of the choreographers of the ceremony, choreographing 100 male dancers in the Origins segment, as well as the final Yalli dance with the whole ceremony cast.
Five Currents put together two astonishing Ceremonies, Opening and Closing, collaborating with some of the best talents from around the world.
Nikos was also the Pre Show director of the Opening Ceremony.
