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).

Reverberated Emissions & Nero

Nero also plays with the perception of gravity and space. In this work by choreographer Emio Greco and 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.

About the makers

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.

Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten have been working together since 1995 in their common quest for new dance forms. In addition to the internationally successful dance productions that Greco and Scholten have created, they have also expanded their dance company to include opera, music and film. They won several international dance awards and toured their performances all over the world. In 2009, Greco and Scholten merged all their activities into the international dance platform ICK Dans Amsterdam.
