Visual art, fashion design and forming a rock band lined Christian Rizzo's unorthodox path to becoming a dancer and then a choreographer. Better known in Europe than in the United States, Rizzo now heads France's prestigious Centre Chorégraphique National de Montpellier–Languedoc-Roussillon. An enfant terrible to some who regard his often minimal movement as being overwhelmed by the music and design elements, his fans consider his blending of dance with other theatrical elements a cutting-edge sensibility. Rizzo arrives with d'après une histoire vraie (based on a true story) with eight male dancers blending contemporary moves with abstracted folk dance set to tribal rock music composed and performed live by percussionists King Q4 and Didier Ambact.
