d'après une histoire vraie

Stage left, two drummers play live on a platform. Eight men meet, get together and take a few steps together, which gradually evolve into a tribal dance with roots in the traditional dances of the Mediterranean Basin.

A few years ago in Istanbul, Christian Rizzo watched a traditional dance performed solely by men. The choreographer was suddenly overcome with a profound emotion. The memory of that scene, fixed in his mind, has since evolved and has now re-emerged as the point of departure for the show 'D'Après une Histoire Vraie'. With eight dancers and two musicians playing live, Christian Rizzo creates a powerful hybrid dance that combines folkloric practices and contemporary dance. The two drums, beating on the margins of tribal rhythms and psychedelic rock, maintain a relationship between dialogue and battle. The dancers form a human chain, hands on shoulders, creating tighter and tighter circles.

Rizzo, Christian

Christian Rizzo was born in 1965 in Cannes. His artistic career began in Toulouse, where he started a rock band and designed a line of clothing, after which he studied fine arts at the Villa d'Arson in Nice, then unexpectedly branched out into dance.

In the 90s he performed with a number of contemporary choreographers including mathilde monnier, herve robbe, mark tompkins and georges appaix, and sometimes created soundtracks and costumes for them as well.

He also worked with choreographers with a different artistic approach, such as vera mantero, catherine contour, emmanuelle huynh and rachid ouramdane.

In 1996 he founded l'association fragile and began presenting events, dancing objects, solos and group pieces, as well as various projects and commissioned work in fashion and the visual arts.

Since then, over thirty projects have borne fruit, not counting his pedagogical activities. Christian rizzo teaches on a regular basis in art schools in France and abroad, as well as in establishments devoted to contemporary dance.

On January 1st, 2015, Christian Rizzo takes the lead of the National Choreographic Center of Montpellier. Now called ICI (International Choreographic Institute), the CCN offers a transversal vision of creation, training, artistic education and openness to the public.

Meeting with literature

Collaboration between a choreographer and a writer can lead to the emergence of a large number of combinations. If sometimes the choreographer creates his dance around the work of an author, the writer can also choose dance as the subject of his text.
