Quotes & Highlights

“A performer of almost Mephistophelean intensity… Greco is in command of one of the most exciting, original and eccentric dance vocabularies of anyone in contemporary dance!” —The Times (U.K.)
“Greco deals in the electrical storms that zap and scintillate through our brain cells every second of our lives, waking and sleeping. He has both a poet’s and scientist’s curiosity…” —The Herald

Description

Set against a stark soundtrack of violin strings and distant sirens, the loneliness of aftermath permeates Rimasto Orfano (Abandoned Orphan). Dancers dressed in ghostly white emerge from a backdrop in which a single dangling bulb casts floods of shadow and light. The body, forced into silence, questions any next step: to withdraw or regroup, to lead or remain behind.
