La Ribot

La Ribot (Switzerland/Spain) is a choreographer, performer and visual artist with a recognized international career. In 2000, she received the Spanish National Award for Dance. Her work has been presented in many theatres, museums and art centers around the world. Between 1997 – 2004,  she joined the British Live Art scene in London. Since 2004, La Ribot lives in Geneva (Switzerland) where she taught at the HEAD – University of Arts until 2008. There, she created a new department dedicated to the living arts – Art/Action.
 
She signs her first production in the flamboyant Madrid of the 80’s, Carita de Angel. In the 90’s, La Ribot started her famous series Distinguished Pieces, a solo life-time project that included seminal pieces such as  Despliegue (2001), Panoramix (2003), Treintaycuatropiècesdistinguées&onestriptease (2007). To further question the concept of “live art,” these pieces were for sale and many were purchased by art collectors.
 
In collaboration with other artists, La Ribot has produced video-installations, films, and performances like 40 espontáneos (2004 ), Laughing Hole (2006), the duet with Mathilde Monnier - Gustavia (2008),  llámame mariachi (2009),  the film mariachi 17 and PARAdistinguidas (2011).
