Emio Greco I Pieter C. Scholten
A DOCUMENTARY ABOUT THE MAKING OF EXTREMALISM
A multidisciplinary piece performed by 30 dancers, 24 from Ballet National de Marseille and 6 from ICKamsterdam.
Twenty years ago the collaboration between Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten began. In this anniversary production they turn back to the qualities that defined their earlier work. Greco
and Scholten look back and give a new interpretation of their work together
with their current dancers. They also ask guest artists from all over the world to share their craft and talent : Icelandic producer and composer Valgeir Sigurðsson embroidered on the theme with new score and visual artist Henk Stallinga created a light sculpture that spins upon itself like a terrestrial globe. It evokes the passing of time: yesterday, today, tomorrow. After opening in 3 major european festivals in June 15, the show will be performed in September at TNM La Criée in Marseilles, then will tour in Europe from March 2016.
