May 27th, 2010: Christian Rizzo – L’Oubli, toucher du bois

@theatre de la ville

I’ll start with the best: I loved Caty Olive’s lighting. Really an amazing show in itself. Unfortunately I didn’t like much else. It started with the stage full of furniture and random objects, including a black ball and a plant that reminded me of a show Christian Rizzo had done a couple of years ago. All these were carried off the stage, but the lying down and carrying of others remained. And it was just as slow. The figures wrapped in black got me back in for a short while — the lighting got me again — but what little happened was way too obvious and predictable. The last sequence started different, with at first a dancer oscillating back and forth that had me think I could like some of the show, but I didn’t. The worst for me was the music, which made dead sure there was no way I would be able to like the show. That was by Sylvain Chauveau, and it featured the exact same tunes that bored me so much when I saw him play a couple of months ago. I knew the show was over for me as soon as I heard it.
