Emio Greco, choreographer and co-owner of ICKamsterdam

“Archiving is creating.”

Archiving is creating. We have a need to create a living archive which enables us to share, elaborate, communicate and to talk about dance to the outside world. I want to document the act of creating and came up with a system that could trace back the energy of the thought of the creation. What was most important to us (Emio Greca and Pieter C. Scholten, red.) was not to create an archive in shape or form, but to capture the intention. We captured written notes, videos, activities, anything we could find related to the dance.

“By trying to capture a dance, the poetic part disappears. Not the intellectual part.”

For me it’s about continuity of creativity. A piece doesn’t exist until the audience is there to witness it. But at the same time having an audience limits you. The freedom stops, because you have to reach your audience and bring something across. By trying to capture a dance, the poetic part disappears. But the intellectual part, that is something you can hold on to.

    I want to express appreciation to you for rescuing me from this particular incident. Just after researching throughout the world wide web and meeting things which are not beneficial, I believed my life was gone. Existing devoid of the answers to the issues you’ve sorted out by means of your entire post is a critical case, and those which might have in a wrong way damaged my entire career if I had not come across your blog post. Your talents and kindness in playing with a lot of things was very useful. I’m not sure what I would have done if I had not discovered such a subject like this. I’m able to now look ahead to my future. Thank you so much for this skilled and effective help. I won’t think twice to suggest your blog post to any person who needs to have support on this problem.
