APPEARANCE

 APPEARANCE is the first part of a diptych inspired by Gustav  Mahler’s masterpiece KINDERTOTENLIEDER, freely adapted by the composer Franck Krawczyk

A show of singing and dance that questions sensorial intuition in our  relationship with the world! Giving children a voice in a sound  landscape composed of noises from nature and animals, each song is a  journey between reality and the imagination, varying depending on where  the light, dance and music take it.

Confronting the fragility of life and the power of the imagination,  Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten take the enigma of childhood to a  state of intense emotion, a quest that is then sublimated by the power  of the voices and bodies in unison.

C. Scholten, Pieter

When the former – a dancer born in southern Italy – and the latter – a director of alternative theatre in the Netherlands – pooled their talent in the 1990s, they turned their creative partnership into a choreographic adventure.
 

Starting in 1995 from curiosity about the body and its inner motives, they created their first work, a solo entitled Bianco. This formed the first part of the « Fra Cervello e Movimento » (« Between Brain and Movement ») trilogy. It was accompanied by an artistic manifesto about the body and seven principles of the body’s logic. This manifesto formed the basis for the new language they went on to create.
masquer
To describe their work and its originality combining rigour of research and imaginative power, a new term was coined: «extremalism». From the early days of their company named EG I PC, Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have developed a universe and a writing forged out of tension and synchronicity, borrowing as much from classical vocabulary as from post-modern dance.
 

The strange theatricality impregnating the pieces and the high quality of the repetitive or exuberant dance of Emio Greco and his dancers are strictly framed by the choreographic score to construct enigmatic fictions of the flesh in each piece. The body, this stranger with its wealth of sensitive worlds, therefore appears reflected in it, as if it were the very author of these stories, absorbed, immersed in unexpected and mysterious spaces that the luminous set design, playing with colour or monochrome, helps reveal, in dialogue with the chosen music.
 

Their most recent creations include « La Commedia » (2011), « Rocco » (2011), « Passione in Due » (2012), « Addio alla fine » (2012), « Double Points: Verdi » (2013), « A Man without a Cause » (2013), « De Soprano’s » (2014), « Le Corps du Ballet National de Marseille », « Boléro », « Passione » and « Extremalism » (2015).
 

Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have won numerous international awards for many of these shows, which are often co-produced by major festivals and performance venues and tour all over the world.
 

In 2009, they created ICKamsterdam, a multidisciplinary international platform for both up-and-coming and established artists. Appointed directors of the Ballet National de Marseille in 2014, their work focuses on the theme of the body from two perspectives: "the body in revolt" or the place of the artist in society and "the corps du ballet" or the search for a new form of contemporary ballet.

Greco, Emio

Emio Greco was born in 1965 in Brindisi, a port in southern Italy, into a modest peasant-farming family. A classically-trained dancer, he spent three years at the Rosella Hightower Centre in Cannes before joining the Ballet Antibes Côte d'Azur. But it was while dancing with Jan Fabre, from 1993 to1996, that he revealed his fabulous talent as a performer. Marrying his instinctive and spontaneous approach to the figurative and visual world of Jan Fabre, Emio Greco savoured this taste for “the skin of the animal”, this fragile and violent creature cowering within us which rebels against the rules that safeguard harmonies and disciplines. In 1996 he joined the Karas company, run by Japanese choreographer and sculptor Saburo Teshigawara, for whom the body is a sculpture brought to life and which its maker animates in space and light, a genesis impregnated with spirituality and oriental aesthetics. There is no doubt that Saburo Teshigawara conveyed to him the idea of the specific potential which, according to him, lies in the transience of this art: dance is born of the acute awareness of what is and what will be. Having absorbed the wealth this fine and incisive choreographic culture, Emio Greco undertook his own choreographic and research project in parallel after meeting the director Pieter C. Scholten in 1995, relentlessly searching for new ways to allow the body's wisdom to express itself.


With Pieter C. Scholten, he founded the company EG | PC in Amsterdam, which works on a triple principle of contemporary creation, interdisciplinary exchanges – within the framework of International Choreographic Art Center Amsterdam (ICKamsterdam) which they also founded and which houses their company – and teaching, provided by the Accademia Mobile. Experimental in its principle (Bianco, Rosso, Extra Dry, a trilogy, 1996-2000), the dance of Greco and Scholten has been developing since 1998 around the concept of Double Points, short pieces which are similar to the events of Merce Cunningham. Their dance also appropriates traditional heritage, through a tetralogy which explores Dante's Divine Comedy – the first three parts being Hell (2006), then Popopera and In visione ([Purgatory], 2006-2008) – and through the rediscovery (and reinterpretation) of Bach, whose St Matthew Passion inspires the music accompanying the solo by Emio Greco in In visione.

Ballet national de Marseille

Back in 1972, Roland Petit created the Ballets de Marseille. Having lost  its -s, the Ballet has become a Centre Chorégraphique National in 1984  and is now run by Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. The creation and  dissemination of shows by the Ballet and guest artists are at the heart  of what it does. Very much rooted in our time, curious about and open to  the world, the BNM is also a prestigious part of Marseille’s cultural  heritage, close to Parc Borély.
