In the series Known & to Know, new work by a young choreographer is presented with the ICK ensemble in combination with a performance from the repertoire of Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten. This first edition is a Double Bill with Reverberated Emissions by Andreas Hannes and Nero, a remake of Conjunto di Nero (Montpellier, France - 2001).
The Greek choreographer Andreas Hannes (1987) rethinks the human relationship with gravity. He searches for a body that is fluid and dangerously sensual. The dancers hop, collide and bend on stage. In Hannes' work, dancers navigate through a space that binds them together as if they were one body. He creates a seductive, exciting environment for an unearthly dance.
Nero also plays with the perception of gravity and space. In this work by choreographer Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten, visual boundaries are blurred by darkness and mist. Bodies disappear and appear in another dimension. Especially for the ICK-Fest, this performance will be danced by Emio Greco himself, together with former ICK-dancers Dereck Cayla and Barbara Meneses and current ensemble dancer Denis Bruno. Four generations of dancers breathe new life into this performance from 2001.
Known & to Know is a journey back to the future where the boundaries of time, space and bodies fade. An interplay of powerful, vulnerable and sensual dance.
