When French artist Christian Rizzo showed up in Seattle four years ago, he set the city to fighting. Some were entranced by his ritualistic solo work (which included smearing his face in Vaseline and rolling it in green glitter), and some thought he represented the worst in vacuous, pretentious performance art. Since then, he's built installations and directed opera (including Schoenberg's Erwartung) in Europe, and now he's back with a bunny mask, some candles, dancer/muse Julie Guibert, and what Rizzo calls her "intelligence of the body—sitting, walking, she always has the right movement at the right place and the right energy." Come see what the transcontinental fuss is all about. (On the Boards, 100 W Roy St, 217-9888, 8 pm, $25)
