Another Distinguée

£16 (£12 concessions)

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

Heroine, Superheroes, Warriors, Mermaid. La Ribot and her performers invent new identities in each  ‘Distinguished Piece’ which are shed and transformed in the next.

In Another Distinguée you are invited into a particular yet familiar space – the black cube of theatre – where a vast looming presence dominates.

Joined by actor Juan Loriente and dancer Thami Manekehla, La Ribot moves the audience around opaque and sinister shadows, exploring the invisible, and opening up to infinite and multiple points of view.

Another Distinguée is part of the artist's ongoing series of work Distinguished Pieces which she started 20 years ago.

La Ribot creates fascinating collections of live performance, installation, video, text and images that push the boundaries of choreography, reframing our view of the body as both object and subject.

Please note that this is a promenade performance. 

Age recommendation 14+

About the artist 

Born in Madrid, La Ribot lives and works in Geneva. Her practice has fundamentally changed the field of contemporary dance. Borrowing freely from the idioms of theatre, visual arts, performance and film, her work positions itself squarely at the point of friction between different artistic disciplines and fields. For La Ribot, dance is the starting point for an extensive experimentation process that is always rooted in the body’s many languages.

Her live performances have been presented at Tate Modern (London), Theatre de Ville, Centre Pompidou & Festival D’Automne (Paris), Reina So a Museum & Soledad Lorenzo Gallery (Madrid), Aichi Triennale (Nagoya, Japan), Fondation Serralves (Porto), Art Unlimited - Art Basel, the S.M.A.K. (Gant), Panorama Festival, (Rio de Janeiro), MUAC (Museo Universitario de Arte Contemporaneo, Mexico City).

Her video works are part of collections at MUSAC (Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y León) the Artium (Centro-Museo de arte contemporáneo vasco), the FRAC (Regional Fund for Contemporary Art) Lorraine, La Panera (Lleida), the Fundación Cajasol (Seville) and La Casa Encendida (Madrid).
