Intention note

« For b.c, janvier 1545, fontainebleau., Christian Rizzo reunites with his favorite cohorts, Caty Olive who creates the lighting environment of the piece, and Gerome Nox who creates its sound score - all focusing on a singular project. The choreographer creates a specific universe, custom-fit to Julie Guibert, a classical dancer he met at the Lyon Opera Ballet in 2004. The dancer has got a specific experience and has come across Maguy Marin’s, Trisha Brown’s, William Forsythe’s, Mats Ek’s and Philippe Decouflé’s universes. Both fascinated by what he calls her “incredible intelligence onstage,” and inspired by her personality, Rizzo continue working on the connection he felt to Ms. Guibert in creating this solo, in which he asks himself, “how do we look at a woman alone on stage, outside her own community?”. He imagines a dance projected into space, nocturnal, carved by the lighting to “delve into the idea of slowness, shaping the calligraphic dimension of the movement.” In the background we intuit the questions revealed by these enigmatic images, of the links between memory and vision, of the ritual dimension of performance, and what it means to write, to create for another person. »
