SYNOPSIS

In Within closed eyes, the choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter C.Scholten embark on an artistic dialogue with Victor Callens and Barbara Meneses, former dancers and collaborators of theirs. The four of them are launched into the research of the essence of a choreographic language that has intermittently united them for the last 20 years.

BIO

Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten created their first work together in 1995, the solo Bianco, which became the first part of the Fra Cervello e Movimento trilogy. In these early solos, Greco expressed a curious body and gave the impression of being surprised by what was happening with his own movements. He summarized his ideas in The Seven Needs (1996), a manifesto with 7 principles on dance and its influence on the body and the spectator.

In 1996, they founded the dance company Emio Greco | PC and in 2009 they merged all their activities into the International Center for Choreographic Arts - ICK Dans Amsterdam. Greco and Scholten have been working together for more than 25 years in their search for a new language of dance and a new approach to the body.
