"like watching the controlled explosion of a nuclear power plant" Oct 1, 2010

by Jessica

Christian Rizzo arrived in the US for his NYC performance at The Kitchen earlier this week and previews have been starting to appear on both coasts. Here's what we've seen so far:

"b.c, janvier 1545, fontainebleau. promises to be another visually spare but striking feast. (The solo can also be seen Oct. 7-10, opening another impressive season at the excellent On the Boards theater in Seattle, where Mr. Rizzo made his American debut in 2006.)
-NY Times (from the fall arts preview)

"His new work, b.c, janvier 1545, fontainebleau., should be like watching the controlled explosion of a nuclear power plant."
-Seattle Weekly

"...the piece combines cinematic staging, slow, stylized movement, and an ominous-looking “bunnyman” for what should be a compelling night of dance."
-Village Voice

"...supremely elegant, sharply sculptural silhouette of Julie Guibert..."
-New Yorker
