Event description
From a True story Contemporary vision of a folk dance on drums

About this Event

Inspired by a traditional men’s folk dance he experienced in Istanbul, Christian Rizzo created his bestseller From a True History in 2013. It is claimed that it does not stop turning and win a success wherever the show goes. If he digs into the sediment of this memory to unearth almost “archaic” forces, the result is not only a prolongation of his memories, it is also the opportunity for a new dialogue. For this occasion, the choreographer’s vision is carried by the compositions of drummers Didier AMBACT and King Q4 , in search of an earthy music of tribal inspiration, but that comes from no particular country. On stage, two sets of drums add the subtlety of their rhythmic play to the performance of eight dancers to create a zone of tension ‘‘between dialogue and battle”.

From this work, you will find the all-male ensemble rides the friction between folkloric practice and formal contemporary performance, building a communal, visceral force.
