REDCAT: "The joy of being alive, of being together momentarily, and the visceral excitement of dancing.” - Le Monde

"Explosive and Expressive.” – Official London Theater

To the sound of energizing tribal rock music by two percussionists on stage, internationally acclaimed choreographer Christian Rizzo extols the masculine in a ritual that combines contemporary dance with abstracted elements of folk dances. Eight male dancers execute powerful choreography inspired by traditional forms and a variety of all-male partnering, building into a raw explosion of pleasure that is absolutely irresistible. Rizzo's latest full-evening work is largely inspired by Turkish folk dances he saw in Istanbul in 2004. Christian Rizzo was recently appointed head of the prestigious Centre Chorégraphique National (CNN) of Montpellier–Languedoc-Roussillon succeeding famed choreographer Mathilde Monnier.
