Rocco at Frascati TheaterDance / Amsterdam
February 25-26, 8.30pm
Rocco is an emotionally dense performance piece that highlights the parrallels between boxing and dance while delving into the complexities of fraternal relationships.
Choreographed by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten, the work was inspired by the 1960 Italian film Rocco e i suoi fratelli (Rocco and His Brothers) by Luchino Visconti.
The performance focuses on two brothers (played by Dereck Cayla and Christian Guerematchi) who express the various aspects of love: tenderness, envy, androgyny and incestuousness.
Drawing on similarities found in boxing and dance, the piece flourishes as strength, virtuosity and physical dedication reflect the turmoil of fraternal relations.
Notably, Rocco won the VSCD Swan in 2012 for most impressive dance performance.
