On 18 September 2015, Christodoulos Panayiotou presented a new version of his lecture-reading, Dying on Stage as part of the Serpentine Galleries' Park Nights Series taking place in the Serpentine Pavilion 2015, designed by selgascano. Dying on Stage explores the hierarchical order of literal, metaphorical and symbolic deaths on the stage, as well as the philological concept of 'tragic irony', through readings, videos and dance. This new version of Dying on Stage, featured dancer Jean Capeille in a choreography by Panayiotou. Presented in collaboration with Fiorucci Art Trust.
