Christian Rizzo is a French choreographer, set designer, director and visual artist. This autumn he presents the UK premiere of d’après une histoire vraie (based on a true story). Though Rizzo is known for his thoughtful, introspective approach to choreography, d’après une histoire vraie breaks away from his established canon, stripping back his usually detailed set in favour of an explosive, expressive choreography for eight male dancers.
Rizzo takes inspiration from his memories of a folk dance performance at a festival in Istanbul in 2004. Rizzo stowed this away in his memory, and has created this piece using the feelings evoked by the masculine, Turkish folklore dancing. Channelling these emotions into d’après une histoire vraie, Rizzo explores dance as it relates to communities, and how movement ties individuals together.
