Emio Greco (Netherlands), ROCCO, Choreographer Emio Greco and director Pieter Scholten have created their most memorable dance-theater work to date that literally brings you into the boxing ring. Inspired by Luchino Visconti’s classic film 'Rocco and His Brothers', ROCCO creates a theatrical environment where dancers become boxers, and boxers become dancers. The theme is brotherhood in all its Biblical, historical, and literary meanings: Cain and Abel, good and evil, angel and devil. You will actually have the option of sitting ringside on stage. ickamsterdam.com
