It’s life Jim, but not as we know it
A philosophical approach on Emio Greco | PC's Trilogy
In 2001 Emio Greco | PC collaborated with Flemish philosopher Antoon Van den Braembussche to produce the essay It's life Jim, but not as we know it, in which he examines the various motifs and motivations of the trilogy Fra Cervello e Movimento.
"In the trilogy there is more at stake than the overt friction between mind and body: it embodies likewise the tension between order and disorder, control and chaos, conscious intention and unconscious desire. As such it is a statement on the essence of dance. It not only shows the tension between choreographic design and vicissitudes (constant changes, constant alternation, unpredictable changes or variations, shifting circumstances) of performance, but it also shows that, as soon as dance speaks the language of the body, its transparency is untenable and a thing of the past: it becomes visceral, instinctive, obstinate and unmastered."
