He won the Young Dance Makers Award 2016 with its graduation performance Eternal Chilling, and was nominated for the Stephanie Daniels price. In addition, the NWE Vorst, L'Aventura DansBrabant selected him for a young makers-residence.
Evangelos ' work comes from an inner need to express themselves through the body. He is fascinated by the contrasts between the human instinct, intuition and perception. His goal is to have a richness and versatility to show in layers of meaning and symbols and thus invite the viewer on a journey in which the imagination is stimulated and new doors open to interpretation and associations.
