La Ribot, born in Madrid, lived and worked in London between 1997 and 2004. Today she lives and works in Geneva. Under her diva’s name, La Ribot, she has created dance pieces that have received numerous awards, and that are placed at the crossroads of contemporary dance, the performing arts, performance and video.
Over the last ten years, La Ribot has created a demanding but humorous vocabulary, exploring the field of geometry through her famous Distinguished Series pieces.
La Ribot’s work forms a system allowing her to conduct research and to develop and question the temporal, spatial and conceptual limits of dance, as her work rests on the confluences of the performing arts, performance and graphic arts.
Since 2000 La Ribot has shown a strong interest in video and its basic functions. This is what led her to construct pieces filmed live from the viewpoint of the body in movement. By presenting her work in internationally renowned galleries, theatres, festivals of dance, the performing arts and performances, La Ribot uses dance in a pertinent and logical manner as a means of challenging disciplinarity.
