Bobby Baxter

“Bobby Baxter is a 25 year old male suspected of hideous crimes.” This sentence is all you need to form a mental image of this man, thus bringing him to life. Before you read this sentence Bobby Baxter did not exist. Now he does. What does he look like, what does his voice sound like, what kind of personality does he have.

One Man without a Cause - dance solo Emio Greco

Emio Greco and Pieter C. Scholten were asked to create a performance about Nobel Prize winner Albert Camus in France in 2013, exactly 100 years after his birth. They based One Man without a Cause on Camus’ classic novel L’Étranger. What does the struggle of one man tell us about society in general?

Thu 23 October

De Soprano’s

De Soprano’s - Verdi’s female protagonists in contemporary dance - is a dance opera in collaboration with Opera Zuid. As a rule, Greco and Scholten never talk about men vs women, but in this production the power of womanhood is studied in three variations. As a woman, how do you deal with the militant, subservient and seductive elements in your character?
