Christian Rizzo

The last time Christian Rizzo was in Seattle, he built a little apartment on stage at On the Boards, where he proceeded to live an eccentric little life, slicing up his clothes and coating his face with cold cream and bright-green glitter. He is a choreographer because he says he is. As a creator in the French non-danse world, he isn't working with movement so much as creating an environment for that potential energy. His new work, b.c, janvier 1545, fontainebleau, should be like watching the controlled explosion of a nuclear power plant. Julie Guibert will be the soloist on stage, with Rizzo orchestrating the mise-en-scène. SANDRA KURTZ
