Une Maison

Christian Rizzo (France)

Minimum age 16+
60 minutes

On a stage that is covered with a thick layer of earth and bathes in the light there are fourteen dancers – all of them different in age and dance background. Their movements flow from one body to the other, steadily

swelling to a climax.The result is a tactile experience that solitude shares with fiction : how can you be in a group and yet alone ? Une Maison is a beautiful group choreography built of solos, duets and trios.

In this way Christian Rizzo considers the state of the world with a multitude of points of view. He chooses very consciously for tenderness and against threat. Let yourself be ushered into this house without a door, with all its windows that offer a view of an imaginary world. In a society full of individualism that seems only to look forward, Rizzo creates a ritual to appreciate what is nearby. 'In this society one makes us believe that everything is eternal. With such an illusion, waking up in reality can be harsh. I believe the opposite. Everything disappears. Only by rituals can you preserve and remember things.'

The French choreographer Christian Rizzo has more than one string to his bow. After a training in visual arts he designed a clothes' line, founded a rockband and finally became a dancer and choreographer. In his work, which meanwhile contains more than 30 choreographies, light, music and décor play an exciting game between fiction and reality.
