Biography of the choreographer
Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have collaborated in their joint search for new dance forms since 1995 in Amsterdam Holland. They found a strong common interest in the possibility of a dance seen as the expression of a visionary body, with the theatrical space as the external influence on that body. In their performances, dance is regarded as autonomous, and capable of creating its own time and space. Their performances are internationally toured since 1995 and have received many different awards for their ouvre.
