A native of Madrid, choreographer, dancer and artist La Ribot lives in Geneva and works around the world. Her body of work, which emerged at the tail end of Spain’s transition to democracy in the 1980s, profoundly reshaped the field of contemporary dance. She flouts the formats and frameworks of the stage and museums, borrowing freely from the lexicons of theatre, visual arts, performance, cinema and video to bring about a conceptual shift in choreography. Solos, collaborative explorations, experiments with amateurs, installations and moving images express the myriad facets of a multidimensional practice with a perpetual focus on the rights of the body.
