“The only thing that makes life possible is permanent, intolerable uncertainty: not knowing what comes next.”
Ursula le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness, 1969

The recent choreographic work of Cristina Kristal Rizzo is like a vintage science fiction movie made on a low budget that has become a cult classic. It’s both legendary and ridiculous at the same time. It’s hilarious and sad – and you are never quite sure what to feel.
ULTRAS puts the audience in a state of emotional confusion, like a magician that is constantly revealing their tricks.There are wigs and aliens and maybe even vampires. Strange objects appear and disappear. Explicit irony suddenly gives way to the most heart-felt dancing we have seen on stage – the kind of freedom of movement and feeling that comes only with years of experience and a lifetime of not giving AF. ULTRAS is an embodiment of contemporaneity – the perfect affective combination of ambiguity, of queerness, of uncertainty – but also hope. It is the kind of dance that oozes and bleeds of today.
With ULTRAS, we want to celebrate the amazing work of Cristina Kristal Rizzo, an undeniable force and royalty of the Italian dance scene, who has inspired so many.
