ROCCO/ROCCA ICK: Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten

In ROCCO/ROCCA the spectator takes place around the boxing ring, in which dancers become boxers and boxers become dancers. They challenge each other with striking punches, fast footwork and virtuoso tactics. In close combat, relationships are put on edge and men and women seek out each others extremes. This performance is part of ICK and can be seen in Frascati theatre.

Extremes of boxer and dancer and physically and emotionally swirling bodies

The performance is based on the film by Italian director Visconti: Rocco ei suoi fratelli , a film about brotherly love and the struggle for a better life. The dancers represent brotherly or sisterly love in all its facets: the good and the evil, the devil and the angel, the androgynous and the incestuous.

ROCCO was awarded the Zwaan Prize 'Most impressive dance production' during the VSCD Nederlandse Dansdagen in 2012. Dancer Christian Guerematchi was nominated for the 'Most Impressive Dance Performance'.

In 2015 ROCCA was brought by Ballet Nationale de Marseille with a female cast. This international success can be seen again in the Netherlands in 2022 as ROCCO/ROCCA, a performance in which gender no longer matters. Men and women are equal, including in their intense physical and emotional surrender to both desire and struggle.
