A boxing match becomes a dance, a dance becomes a boxing match. Brothers are locked in an eternal bout of love and brutality and hate. On a stage transformed into a boxing ring with audience seating on three sides, male fighter-dancers perform a virtuosic display of close combat-choreography. Be a witness to an animalistic courtship of intelligence, masculinity and physicality, extreme control and iron discipline of the boxing body and the dancing body. Until somebody gets knocked out. ‘When you watch the footage of Mohammad Ali it resembles the amorous game of attracting and rejecting one another. We also wanted to investigate the aesthetics of beating the living daylights out of one another.” Pieter C. Scholten, co-creator “The balletic bouts of speedy steps, jabbed limbs and torqued torsos are choreographed in strict rotational symmetry and tied to the arrhythmic jitters of a percussive score.” The Guardian Choreography and direction by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. Rocco is inspired by Luchino Visconti’s 1960 classic neo-realist film, Rocco & His Brothers, and by fraternal rivalries of history and mythology. Since 1995 Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have worked together to search for new dance forms. Feb 27 + 28 at 8pm $29 / Members save 30%
