One & Two


Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten

In this pair of short pieces Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten question and at the same time pursue the utopia of synchronicity.

In One, dancer Emio Greco is confronted by the mesmerizing music of Ravel's Bolero. Resisting and responding to the compelling pattern imposed by the music he explores the boundaries of the dancing body. Two presents different aspects of duality and the occurrence of opposition and correspondence. It is a duet in which the dancers delve into the consequences of two people sharing the same space.

Both pieces were also presented as a Double Point. Two has also been part of the programme of the Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) in season 03/04.


"Greco and the music fight it out, the dance builds its own riveting logic, and draws a chart of the nervous system that propels it. We feel as if we are inside him. It is an experience both awesome and intimate. Judith Mackrell" – The Guardian (UK) 01-04-2003

"The startling physical presence of Emio Greco has the same impact as some primal force of nature. Few artists are so compellingly mesmerising. His sizzling One & Two is secretive, yet you never feel shut out; instead he draws you into the hub of his drastically beautiful world. Greco’s visit to London as a part of the Barbican’s Bite season was one of the year’s most intense performances." -  Time Out London (UK) January 2004
