One of the highlight at Dutch Dance Festival 2011 in Maastricht. It's a pleasure for the eyes and scent, all well designed, beautiful solo's and music; l’essence de la danse.
Everything is white in this final section of the four-part work based on Dante’s La Divina Commedia. In you PARA|DISO, Emio Greco, Pieter C. Scholten and their dancers openly go in search of paradise. ‘Six strong personalities get their teeth into dance. They seduce us with their intensity and their tight, glittery costumes’. Ambiguity lies in waiting, and immeasurable bliss is accompanied by lifelessness in a paradise that is as beautiful as it is terrible.

you PARA | DISO was nominated for a Swan 'best dance production'

Have a look!

Concept en choreography: Emio Greco en Pieter C. Scholten Dance: Victor Callens, Dereck Cayla, Vincent Colomes, Neda Hadji-Mirzaei, Sawami Fukuoka, Suzan Tunca.

Parallel to the performance Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten together with Italian perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri, developed a perfume: you PARA | DISO: l’essence de la danse.
Next to this the choreographers present their third magazine under the same title as the performance and perfume: you PARA | DISO.
With you PARA | DISO l'essence de la danse, Greco and Scholten present a unique project in which the dance is linked to a fragrance. In close cooperation with Italian perfumer Alessandro Gualtieri (‘The Nose’) and well-known Dutch designers Joost van Bleiswijk and Kiki van Eijk, Greco and Scholten set out on a quest to capture paradise inside a small bottle. The result is: the infinite bliss of being, distilled in 30 milliliters.
