The Warrior Poets

We are a new performance collective founded in 2019.

Hannah Wendel, Yiannis Logothetis, and Elia Mrak.

A poet shares their truth. And a warrior fights for a cause. Our truth is dance, and our cause is recapturing the power of physical storytelling.

Performance and a Party

THE STORY
Performance and a Party was born in 2016 when Hannah Wendel, Elia Mrak, and Yiannis Logothetis created a high-quality dance performance to accessible, non-traditional spaces in New York City, with a live DJ and a drink bar.

A Talk with Myself

THE STORY
we enter this world alone. we die alone. and when we drink wine with others, we must first find the flavor on our own tongues. then we can discuss how delicious it tastes.
