ROCCO - Emio Greco | PC

15th edition of Dutch Dance Festival took place last weekend. For me personally it could not have started better than with the energetic performance around a boxing ring at'ROCCO' by Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten. ROCCO is also awarded with the 'Swan for the most impressive dance production' at the Gala of the Dutch Dance Festival 2012.

We sit round a boxing ring and watch dancers who box and boxers who dance. The men share and stake out their territory, they show their body and their strengths to fight for their right to exist. The boxing match is the world in which the other can be admitted or rejected. Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten were inspired for ROCCO by the film Rocco e i suoi fratelli by Luchino Visconti about brotherly love and the struggle for a better life. ‘Imprisoned in the ring, clustered in the light, we recognise all the possible relationships between people.’ 

Choreography: Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten
