Christian Rizzo / ICI – CCN Montpellier
This show is presented with the Théâtre de la Ville as part of their "offsite" programming.
une maison,the new opus by choreographer Christian Rizzo, is a community of dance and affects. A rendezvous in tune with the idea of living together, in a time of memory. Welcome to you.
With a couple of pieces, Christian Rizzo has been able to propose a sensitive exploration of independent dance, anonymous and traditional practices. Today he is looking into other continents of gestural horizons. une maison prefigures new desires, new choreographic challenges. “The question of dance is very present. For this new creation, the idea is to question what gets me moving and what I get to move. I like the idea of being intentional and totally unintentional at the same time in what creates movement for me.” Christian Rizzo declares. Bringing together fourteen performers on stage, without forgetting long-term accomplices, une maison positions itself as community of thought when faced with disappearance. “I feel that it is a piece that pushes from the inside.” For the choreographer, there was a desire to reunite visual experiences, dance, new ones, but also those set in the past, and to re-convene things. une maison as a space to share what is sometimes a bit divided.” Like a dance to be shared.
