It is from a show of a traditional stealth round improvised by a goup of men in Istanbul that Christian Rizzo found the inspiration for D’après une histoire vraie (From a True Story). Looking for a feeling of immediate empathy that the souvenir left him, he imagines a space where the movement and its relation to the music play with the « popular » and « contemporary » categories. He starts from traditional practices especially masculine and mediteranean. And adds to it his specificities, such as the fall or the touch of the body that allows everyone tostand thanks to the présence of the other. From an extract of the play, you will see the unisson as a sensible way to be together. After a preparation time which includes massages and meditation, you will explore improvisation techniques and instant composition in which the singuliarity of each make the richness of the group.
