Magma

Her, Marie-Agnès Gillot, is the most unclassifiable étoile of her generation. Her hieratic lines and her presence marked the repertoire of the Paris Opera Ballet. Him, Andrés Marín, is one of the big names in contemporary flamenco. These two flamboyant personalities have chosen to meet through a unique creation, at the crossroads of their worlds. Those of Marie-Agnès Gillot range from classical dance to Pina Bausch and Les Enfoirés, while Andrés Marín has moved away from traditional flamenco by collaborating, in particular, with hip hop dance. A third voice, that of Christian Rizzo, will be added to this duo: "They share a very strong animality, but the shadow of this animality must be even more disturbing", explains the choreographer.

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.
