Maria La Ribot
La Ribot is a choreographer, dancer and artist. Her work, which appeared at the end of the democratic transition in Spain in the 1980s, has profoundly changed the field of contemporary dance.
She challenges the frameworks and formats of the stage and the museum, freely borrowing from the vocabulary of theatre, visual arts, performance, film and video to make a conceptual shift in choreography.
Soli, collaborative explorations, research with amateurs, installations and moving images thus present the facets of a protean practice, which never ceases to bring into play the right of the body.
In 2020, she was awarded the Golden Lion of the Biennale Danza di Venezia for her entire career. In 2019, she received the Swiss Grand Prix for Dance by the Federal Office of Culture.
