Extremalism explores the way individuals react to today’s crisis. What does a body do in extreme circumstances ? How does it cope in a minimal setting?
20 years ago the collaboration between Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten began. In this anniversary piece, they go back to the intrinsic qualities that define their earlier works. With the dancers from the Ballet National de Marseille and ICKamsterdam, they can look back and give a new interpretation of their work.
