La Ribot Ensemble a Roma – Un triplo programma

A programme of performances taking place in Rome to celebrate the great career of dancer, choreographer and visual artist La Ribot.

La Ribot was born in Madrid in 1962 and is currently living in Geneva and performing internationally. La Ribot was awarded with¬†Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at Biennale Danza di Venezia 2020,¬†Grand Prix suisse de danse par l‚ÄôOffice f√©d√©ral de la culture en 2019,¬†Premio en Artes Pl√°sticas de Comunidad de Madrid (Espa√Īa, 2018),¬†Medalla de Oro al Merito en las Bellas Arte (Espa√Īa, 2015),¬†Premio Nacional de Danza, Ministerio de Cultura (Espa√Īa, 2000).¬†La Ribot is a choreographer, dancer, and visual artist. Her art emerged at the end of Spain‚Äôs democratic transition in the 1980s and has gone on to profoundly change the field of contemporary dance. She defies the frameworks and formats of the stage and the museum, borrowing freely from the vocabularies of theater, visual art, performance art, film, and video to achieve a conceptual shift in choreography. Her solos, collective explorations, experiments with amateurs, installations, and moving images are the many facets of a protean practice that constantly focus on the rights of the body.¬†The artist has presented her choreographic work at, among others, Tate Modern, London; Festival d‚ÄôAutomne, Th√©√Ętre de la Ville and Centre Pompidou, Paris; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sof√≠a (MNCARS), Madrid; Aichi Triennale, Nagoya; Galer√≠a Soledad Lorenzo, Madrid; Museu Serralves, Porto; the Art Unlimited platform at the Art Basel Festival, Basel; S.M.A.K., Ghent; and Museo Universitario de Arte Contempor√°neo (MUAC), Mexico City.¬†La Ribot‚Äôs visual work is part of major private and public collections, including Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sof√≠a (MNCARS), Madrid; Centre Pompidou, Paris; Centre national des arts plastiques, Paris; el Museo de Arte Contempor√°neo de Castilla y Le√≥n (MUSAC), Leon; Artium (Centro-Museo Vasco de Arte Contempor√°neo), Vitoria;¬†and Fonds r√©gional d‚Äôart contemporain (FRAC) de Lorraine, Metz.

A production of La Ribot Ensemble, with the support of Pro Helvetia, Swiss Arts Council, the Ville de Genève Рdépartement de la culture and the République et Canton de Genève.
A co-production of Teatro di Roma-Teatro Nazionale and Istituto Svizzero.

Pi√®ce distingu√©e N¬į45

Performance, 2016
Duration: 35’44”
Directed by La Ribot
Costumes: La Ribot
With: Piera Bellato, Mathilde Invernon, Lisa Laurent and Ludovico Paladini

Without the need for any specific theatrical setting or device, Pi√®ce distingu√©e N¬į45 can be deployed anywhere like spreading a blanket on the ground for an impromptu picnic.¬†In profound silence, a singular and elegantly dressed couple extends and settles upon a blue velvet cloth. Pi√®ce distingu√©e n¬į45 plays with the rituals of performing arts and the power of painting. It is also an investigation into the subtle play of erased identities.

H20:00-20:40
FILM NOIR
Istituto Svizzero, Via Liguria 20, Roma
Free entry ‚Äď register here.¬†

Film, 2014
Duration: 35 min
In French
Direction, text, photography: La Ribot
Voice: La Ribot and La√ętitia Dosch (FILM NOIR 001)
Editing, sound and post-production: Camilo de Martino
Bandes noires (FILM NOIR 003) Tamara Alegre and La Ribot 

Begun in 2014 and finished in 2017, FILM NOIR is a project proving: the figure of the extra, the ‘supernumerary’ or background performer. La Ribot‚Äôs pieces 12 toneladas de Plumas¬†(1991), 40 Espont√°neos¬†(2004), and PARAdistinguidas¬†(2011), for example, invited extras (local people with little or no theatrical experience) to centre-stage in new, live works for the theatre. In contrast, FILM NOIR looks back into movie history and uses video to explore the dynamics of cinematic extra-hood. FILM NOIR takes a close look at the extras in Spartacus (1960) and El Cid (1961) ‚Äď human ‘litmus paper’ whose actions and attitudes reveal the two productions‚Äô contrasting ideologies in 60s Franco’s Spain.

Mathilde Monnier and La Ribot take us to the heart of Gustavia’s dual personality, the two protagonists being themselves a duo, twins, doubles or competing divas. This heart is a dark, maddening, and dangerous non-place, from which emerges an acute feminist critique of the imperatives dictated to women to ‘perform’ their gender satisfactorily, with a bouquet of incessant, normative, often grotesque, sometimes contradictory, and even impossible demands.
