Emio Greco | PC, the mesmerazing and idiosyncratic Amsterdam based company are getting ready for their USA Tour and their New York premiere of [purgatorio] POPOPERA at the Joyce Theater. From the [purgatorio] POPOPERA event post: "After their kaleidoscopic HELL (2006), Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten continue their journey through Dante’s Divine Comedy. In [purgatorio] POPOPERA, Bang on a Can composer Michael Gordon enriches the typical EG | PC research on the relationship between dance and music using structural elements from rock music. Six dancers intertwine with gleaming black electric guitars. A cross? A third arm? A lump of suffering? Dancers mutate into instruments. Raging guitars become fragile flesh and blood sound-boards. Chained by strings a crowd of dancers seeks purification in a redeeming rhapsody. [purgatorio] POPOPERA blends raw unpolished musicality with fine physical virtuosity and dissolves the borders of music and dance." See US tour schedule here which includes artist salons, performances and documentary screenings Starting Monday September 14th, dance-techTV is dedicating special spaces to EG | PC with interviews, performance excepts and exclusive broadcast of documentaries Double Skin/Double Mind and Imagined Hell by filmmaker Maite Bermudez (also dance-tech.net member).
