Emio Greco | PC
Rimasto Orfano (Abandoned Orphan)

Apr 8–10, 2005


One of the strongest presences in new European dance returns to the MCA with an intense performance piece about presence and abandonment. Choreographer Emio Greco and director Pieter Scholten bring their acclaimed company and provocative vision in their ongoing quest into duality, parallels, opposites, and echoes. Rimasto Orfano occupies the moment between thought and action when the body reaches its physical and emotional limits and chooses to lead or remain behind. With music by Michael Gordon of Bang on a Can, the dancing is rigorous one moment and instinctive the next, blisteringly fast and ultra-controlled.
