Another Bloody Mary
Another Bloody mary
Another Bloody Mary is part of what La Ribot calls DISTINGUISHED PROJECT, a regroupment of perforrmances which has spanned for more than 20years. The are characterized by their brevity and metaphorical encapsulation questioning “the temporal, spatial, and conceptual limits of dance.”
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.

[1930-1960]: Neoclassicism in Europe and the United States, entirely in tune with the times
The Ballets Russes paved the way for what would become known as: neo-classical. Back then, the term “modern ballet” was frequently used to define this renewal of aesthetics: a savvy blend of tradition and innovation, which each choreographer defined in their own way.
The committed artist
In all the arts and here especially in dance, the artist sometimes creates to defend a cause, to denounce a fact, to disturb, to shock. Here is a panorama of some "committed" choreographic creations.

[1970-2018] Neoclassical developments: They spread worldwide, as well as having multiple repertoires and dialogues with contemporary dance.
In the 1970s, artists’ drive towards a new classic had been ongoing for more than a half century and several generations had already formed since the Russian Ballets. As the years went by, everyone defended or defends classical dance as innovative, unique, connected to the other arts and the preoccupations of its time.
