About Rocco

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.

Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten

Both choreographers, Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholton create dance performances that incorporate diverse artistic influences including opera, music and cinema. 

Recent productions have included the trilogy HELL from 2006, (purgatorio) from 2008 and you PARA / DISO from 2010, inspired by the Divina Comedia by Dante.
