Exploring stints as a rock
musician and a fashion designer before examining the visual arts, French choreographer and
multidisciplinary artist Christian Rizzo uses an outsider’s invigorating perspective to translate
the ineffable into art.
Examining the dynamic between the interpreter and the maker, the Sujets à Vif project
inverts the usual relationship by inviting powerful performers to select their choreographer.
Taiwan born I-Fang Lin, currently with the Mathilde Monnier Company in Montpellier, commissioned
Christian Rizzo to create this richly layered, poignant human portrait of a rapidly evolving
100% Polyester and Fantômes et vanités nº4
In conjunction with the dance work above, Christian
Rizzo brings two beautiful installation pieces to CPR: the haunting installation/performance 100%
Polyester and, Fantômes
et vanités nº4,
an explosive self-portrait of an artist shedding light
on his unique creativity that at once is both spectacular and melancholic.
