Artistic statement

D’à côté is a perceptual and choreographic tale in which 3 beings evolve. Emerging and vanishing on stage create a moving landscape, where dance and objects enter in a dialogue with lighting and sound, opening onto a dreamlike space in which each protagonist invites the other in its own world. Combining dancers and hybrid figures, d’à côté develops an abstract narrative made of disruptions, movements’ contaminations, free images’ associations, and physical involvement. D’à coté carries within the desire to provide a space of metamorphoses for an audience of all ages so that everyone’s possible fantasies are brought together.”
Christian Rizzo - October, 2016

Creator of images, Christian Rizzo continues his line of work and undertakes this piece for all ages. After creating a trilogy of “choreographic dance pieces on dances” (d’après une histoire vraie (2013), ad noctum (2015), le syndrome ian (2016)), he pursues his work following his commitment and what has always nurtured him: a fantasy dreamlike world, hybrid, made of plasticity met by strange figures. The title d’à côté alludes to the out-of frame spaces encountering one another on stage: images, sound, lighting. From this different medium’s connection erupts phantasmagoric forms, in which bodies are not the only compositional tools. While imagining a piece for young audience and families, Christian Rizzo wishes to push our boundaries and expand our fantasies into a made up magical world.
