Le Corps
du Ballet National de Marseille

Emio Greco I Pieter C. Scholten

How can classical ballet be turned into a playground, or rather a battlefield, where the individual and the group meet? This question is a common theme running through the work of Greco and Scholten who, since they first met, have continually been questioning the limits of classical dance. Loosely inspired by Elias Canetti’s literary masterpiece Crowds and Power, here the arabesque joins the shout, the most famous pas de deux move about in front of a group that is as closely bound as a tribe. The body is both Apollonian and Dionysian. Past and present coexist and collide with one another, all set to music that is just as energetic and powerful.
