The U.S. premiere of ROCCO. Choreographers Emio Greco and Pieter Scholten have created their most memorable dance-theater work to date that literarily brings you into the boxing ring. Inspired by Luchino Visconti’s classic film "Rocco and His Brothers," ROCCO creates a theatrical environment where dancers become boxers, and boxers become dancers. The theme is brotherhood in all its Biblical, historical, and literary meanings: Cain and Abel, good and evil, angel and devil. You will have the option of sitting ringside on stage with ROCCO’s dancers.
