12th Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony
Apostolia Papadamaki - 12th Paralympic Games Opening Ceremony, Athens 2004

Taking place around a 26 meter high tree, the Opening Celebration featured over 1600 performers and volunteers. Giant monumental projection on the tree and field of play, Apostolia Papadamaki’s original choreography of “humanity” and musical performances were combined to create a show on the theme of the universal elements from which mankind draws its strength and life force.
