Epic Dreams Oct 22, 2010

by Amelia

          5:30 a.m.  Not long ago, I was immersed in some epic dreams.  There are too many images to recall.  In the first dream, Faith, we are in our long past.  Sorrow.  Low and slow we contract and move through our suffering, changing our place, but repeat these lessons until we surrender.  Again.  It is

Christian Rizzo: Seductive Arranger Oct 8, 2010

by Amy O'Neal

Everything Christian Rizzo does on stage is deliberate.  Even if perhaps he chooses to pick up candles in a different order each night (which I don't know for certain, but want to find out), he would treat each moment with a formalized tenderness.  The first time I saw Rizzo was in 2006 at On the Boards.  I knew nothing about him then and just showed up wide open

"Christian Rizzo gives people fits. Last week, an argument erupted in a Seattle restaurant at the mere mention of his name. "Oh my God, he's the worst!" one of the arguers shouted, going on to describe Rizzo as the epitome of vapid, pretentious, navel-gazing performance art. Another argued that Rizzo's performance is a ritual, a type of secular sacrament, slow but transcendent.
