THOMAS DIAFAS | PERFORMANCE INTERVENTION
Filmed by Tokomburu
Production by Inkas Film Productions
Thomas Diafas, writer and performer (1987), Thessaloniki, Greece | Dance With Me
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.
