Tony Rizzi and the Bad Habits


a performance by nobody, going nowhere, for no one in particular

Mousonturm Saal


Tony Rizzi, long-time dancer with Ballet Frankfurt and the Forsythe Company, choreographer for renowned ensembles, such as Bayerisches Staatsballett, Pennsylvania Ballet, Royal Ballet of Londonand and creator of thrillingly bizarre performances for his company Bad Habits, returns to Mousonturm with a new production. Inspired by a trip to Kyoto with the artist Penny Arcade, a friend of his, he explores our connection to nature, which is expressed in the Japanese concept of kami. Kami refers to gods, nature spirits or the souls of the deceased, but also to natural phenomena that evoke an intense emotional reaction such as awe or amazement. The idea of constant growth and movement in nature and thus in ourselves is just as much a subject of the new work as birth, death and non-existence. The never ending flow of energy in the dance leads us to the right place to enjoy both death and life. Let the party begin!
