Christos Papadopoulos studied dance and choreography in SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam (2003), theatre in the National Theatre of Greece Drama School (GNT Drama School) (1999) and Political Sciences in Panteion University (2000).

His works, “OPUS” and “ELVEDON”, met with great acclaim when presented in Porta Theatre in Greece, and in a number of festivals abroad. “ELVEDON” was the first choice of the Pan-European network Aerowaves 16 Dance Across Europe and was later presented with equal success in Paris (Théâtre de la Ville and La Briqueterie), in Amsterdam and other European stages. “OPUS” – another work of distinction – was chosen by Aerowaves 17, while March 2018 marks the beginning of its international tour.

He was part of the 2004 Athens Olympics Opening and Closing Ceremonies team and the Baku 2015 European Games. He has choreographed the performances of numerous directors (Dimitris Karantzas, Michail Marmarinos, Thomas Moschopoulos, Yannis Kakleas, Vasilis Nikolaidis, Vasilis Mavrogeorgiou, Kostas Gakis). He has been with the Drama School of the Athens Conservatoire since 2003, teaching movement and improvisation. He is also a founding member of the dance group The Lion and the Wolf (2015).

Ion, his most recent work, has attracted the attention of international co-producers.
