Since 1995 Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have worked together in their joint search for new dance forms.
In 2009 Greco and Scholten decided to gather all their activities and they gave rise to the International Choreographic Arts Centre Amsterdam (ICKamsterdam). ICKamsterdam is a platform for contemporary dance and is grounded on three pillars: Company (the production of dance performances), Guest Artists (the stimulation and support of new, young talents from both an artistic and a business perspective) and Academy (the transfer of knowledge in the dance field in educational and research programs).
ICKamsterdam is part of an inspiring national and international dance context. ICKamsterdam is supported by the Performing Arts Fund NL (FPK) and the municipality of Amsterdam.
