EXTREMALISM — Ballet National de Marseille & ICKamsterdam – Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten


  • 20.00 Concertzaal
  • 21.30 Expected end time
  • Post-performance talk by Steven De Belder


Thirty dancers, thirty bodies, thirty revolts, thirty reflections on the present

The international dance production Extremalism is a multi-disciplinary piece performed by dancers from Marseille and from Amsterdam. This large scale anniversary production crowns 20 years of collaboration by the choreographers' duo Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten.

Extremalism is about the way mankind responds to today's crisis. What does a body do in an extreme situation? Or by contrast, how does it survive in a very minimal setting? Extremalism is among the most ambitious and extensive pieces in the works of Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten. In times of scarcity and cut-backs, the piece is a celebration of contemporary dance and the power of the body.

'The first dance collaboration of Amsterdam and Marseille offers a titillating combination of quality and idiosyncrasy.'
