Following two decades of experience in cultural production and arts management, including a partnership with ‘Paul Szilard Productions Inc., New York’ – international agent for the Martha Graham Dance Company and Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater – Vassilis Grigoropoulos founded his own company, visionary culture, to produce, co-produce, represent and manage Greek and international companies and artists in dance, music, theatre, and the visual arts. In 2015, following a close collaboration with the choreographer Andonis Foniadakis, he brought to the Athens & Thessaloniki Megaron his full-evening piece, Wisteria Maiden. In March 2016, the Greek Ministry of Culture and the Greek National Opera announced Foniadakis as the new Artistic Director of the Opera’s Ballet Company. Currently, visionary culture is collaborating closely with EllinikoTheatro and its Emmy award winning director, Yannis Simonides, co-producing the global theatrical success Socrates Now, as well as Maori-Bacchae, a new, ambitious theatre project being developed in New Zealand, Greece and the USA.
