Dear ChangeFashion,

I just returned from a dance performance ‘comme crâne, comme culte’ by Christian Rizzo & L’Association Fragile that was hosted at Walter, the store of Walter Van Beirendonck and Dirk Van Saene in Antwerp.

Christian Rizzo is a French choreographer with a past as fashion designer, rock-musician and dancer. And he is currently being invited by DeSingel in Antwerp to perform several of his choreographic works. During his visits in Antwerp, the Walter-store is one of his compulsory stops in the city. So that is why it was evident for Rizzo to perform one of his pieces at Walter.

The store – a former mechanic’s garage – was completely emptied. Using the iconic figure of a black biker with helmet Rizzo presented a slow, meditative solo-performance using quotations from break-dance  and acrobatics. Christian Rizzo: “I showed a dancer that is unrecognizable by his biker-suit, so that the audience is not fixed on the persona of the dancer. All the attention is on the movement and the costume becomes an ‘inner’ turned inside-out.”
