Michele Rizzo developed his interest in art and performance in Italy, where he studied piano, dance technique, and architecture. In 2011 he graduated from the SNDO (School for New Dance Development) in Amsterdam. As a performer he worked with a.o. Nicole Beutler & Ulrike Quade, Diego Gill & Igor Dobricic and Emio Greco | Pieter C. Scholten. In addition to his work as a performer and maker, Rizzo regularly gives workshops at the SNDO in Amsterdam and at international festivals.
In 2014 he developed M, an on-going project, which will take the form of a performance, exhibition and magazine in collaboration with dramaturge Igor Dobricic and various visual artists including Daniel Vom Keller, Katarzyna Szugajew and Erwin Olaf. This project was supported by ICK, Nagib (Maribor) and Dansmakers Amsterdam. With the support of ICK Higher (2015) and Spacewalk (2017) were also created.
