Founded in 2013, (LA)HORDE is a collective of three artists: Marine Brutti, Jonathan Debrouwer and Arthur Harel.

Their creations are rooted in contemporary social issues and have included collaborations with senior citizens, the visually impaired, and adolescents.

Acclaimed and much talked about work Room with a View was created in collaboration with Rone, a key figure in the French electronic music scene, and features 18 dancers from 14 countiries from the Ballet national de Marseille.

☞ Christian Rizzo
D’après une histoire vraie

Eight dancers and two drum sets,
undulating from serenity to furor

Short-sleeved shirts, denim pants, and bare feet. Eight men appear on a dimly lit stage and begin to dance in quiet unison. After a short while, two drummers join them. The dancers synchronize in pairs, in a group, and then suddenly find themselves alone and apart from the group. The convergence and dispersal, repetition and development are dizzying yet tightly constructed, leaving no room for the viewer to steal their eyes away for even a brief moment. And despite the elegant composition, the bodies of the dancers bubble with heat and pulsate with excitement.

An influential presence in the European art scene, Christian Rizzo is a multifaceted practitioner working not only in the performing arts but also such other fields as visual arts, fashion, and music. He currently serves as artistic director of the International Choreographic Institute and is a leading figure in the European contemporary dance world.

The origin of this work, which premiered at the Festival d’Avignon in 2013, can be traced back to Rizzo’s memory of being deeply moved by a performance by male dancers he witnessed in Istanbul some ten years prior. Although separated in time, one dance prompts the birth of another. Witness a moment in the unbroken, continuous act that is dance.
