AZIVA DANCE. point where mentally you start to have a lot of information intake, and it gets to the point where your brain gets a bit confused. There is an overload of information, and all you want to do is give your best, give the quality that the choreographer is looking for." Such as in the instance of esteemed Greek choreographer Andonis Foniadakis, whom Petros recently worked with at Sydney Dance Company. In April 2014, having completed his four years with Tavaziva Dance, Petros made the move back from London to Australia. Here, he joined Sydney Dance Company for the Louder Than Words performances, showing from 4 to 18 October at Sydney Theatre and featuring works by Rafael Bonachela and Andonis Foniadakis. For Petros, it was a dream come true. "The comeback to Australia, where you were born, where your family is, and giving them a chance to see, as they could never be at my performances. Australia was one place where I never toured while in London - now they will be able to see what I have been doing all this time," Petros laughs. Having never seen the work of Antonis Foniadakis live, he says what he got during three weeks of working with Foniadakis was everything he expected and much more. "The cooperation with him was a physically and mentally demanding experience, in the best possible way. You really have to give yourself totally. "I have never worked with someone Greek in the dance world before, and the way he is and his personality - working with Andonis was like working with an uncle, he would even speak to me in Greek sometimes. "Louder Than Words is going to be exactly that - louder than words. Loud, in a really exciting way. The work is a big crowd pleaser, fun to watch. Audiences will love it. You certainly won't get bored - dance and music are exciting, with limbs flying everywhere, people being lifted, and non-stop action," Petros reveals. Louder Than Words is on at Sydney Theatre, 4 to 18 October.
