In the exuberant ROCCO, the Kasser Theater becomes a boxing ring, and every seat is ringside. Dancers challenge each other with punches and strikes, fast footwork and ingenious tactics in this high-stakes match. Inspired by the classic Italian film, Rocco & His Brothers, ROCCO depicts brotherly love and the struggle for a better life with dazzling physical virtuosity.
