‘For Italian choreographer Emio Greco and Dutch theatre director Pieter C. Scholten, curiosity about the body and its inner motives serves as the starting point of the dance. Collaborators since 1995, their work belongs in the domain of contemporary dance even as it incorporates, transforms and questions classical elements in a constantly changing context. Greco and Scholten make a contemporary dance that cuts its own path through established paradigms.

Emio Greco | PC create new dances, collaborate with artists from other artistic disciplines, explore the possibilities and limits of dance and transfer their new insights to others through workshops at home and abroad. In addition, the company actively stimulates the discourse on dance in general.’ (Text taken from:

About Extra Dry (1999)
In Extra Dry another dancer enters Emio Greco | PC’s universe for the first time. The perfectly controlling mind, subjecting the body to the will of the dancer is confronted by the body’s resistance to obey. The two bodies breach invisible boundaries; moving from the explosive to the exploratory in the search for oneness.
