Dance meets boxing in one of the most alluring performances of presenter White Bird’s season. Created by choreographer Emio Greco and director Pieter C. Scholten (that’s what the “PC” stands for), Rocco is inspired by Luchino Visconti’s 1960 boxing film, Rocco and His Brothers. The idea sounds like a knockout, but reviews from other cities make it out to be a letdown. Apparently, the boxing ring on the stage, with the ringside audience, is fantastic, but the appeal dwindles from there. The dance-boxing between the two performers at the outset is sidestepped for a strange bout between two cartoonish characters dressed like Mickey Mouse. The pair milk the camp and jab at each other, eventually stripping to reveal sparkly pants and a not totally surprising hint of homoeroticism. According to The Guardian, the piece is “strong on mood and atmosphere, but its wavering tone and intent means that its best punches aren’t always best placed.”
