My place in society does not allow me to play Russian roulette, to open a casino, to carry on a sexual relationship with Bill Clinton, to dress myself out of a fashion magazine, to wear sneakers Made in China. My place in society requires me to barely lift a finger, to spy on my concierge, to wait for the bus, to reread the rules which govern my access to the penal code, to put my socks on right side out, to carry on a normal conversation, to correctly spell the following words: ? WARNING, DON?T MOVE, YOU?RE ON CAMERA? (tonelessly), to open a bank account, to climb the walls, to smoke and drink to excess. I?m a folk tale hero. 340,000 copies sold every year. I hold the department store sales record for 40 years. To answer to the question: What color is Henry IV?s white horse? Question... Answer...

Snow Whites in Lille's Opera an invitation by Christian Rizzo

6th and 7th of November 2009

Created by Christian Rizzo, this performance is a reflection of the polymorphous artist himself, who is at the same time choreographer, artist, stylist and founder of a rock band. He invites the public on a voyage through all sections of the Opera, with presentations on the theme of the Double. Since 100% polyester, his now-cult installation (presented at the Opera in 2007) composed of two suspended and moving dresses, or the body of Soit le puits était profond… (Presented at the Opera in 2006) transformed into mutant creatures, the double is one of the obsession motifs of his creations. For this occasion he gathers a few of his faithful friends and his loves, all united around the figure, the person and the incarnation…
An evening in three acts: First act: your choice! Between the solo of I-Fang Lin choreographed by Christian Rizzo, or Catherine Baÿ and her Snow White multiplied to infinity, or the monologue of Didier Galas with his (H)arlequin, famous valet of western theatre and his fabricated stories. Seats are limited in each space, so please subscribe early for the performance of your choice…
