La Ribot

Performance | Panoramix (1993–2003)

Tanz im August

Duration 180 Min

Her project “Distinguished Pieces” made Spanish choreographer La Ribot a key figure within the international contemporary dance and live art scenes. The work consists of short solos that divide their discourse into parts which are ordered into independent sequences. In 2003 the first 34 “Distinguished Pieces” were presented as one long performance under the title “Panoramix” as part of Live Culture at the Tate Modern, London. It is a panorama of the first ten years of La Ribot’s acclaimed ongoing project. Lasting three hours “Panoramix” is a hybrid of exhibition, contemporary dance and experimental performance. As La Ribot’s actions, poses and objects accumulate, a spatialised memory begins to form.

Shown as a part of the RETROSPECTIVE LA RIBOT: Occuuppatiooon!


Born in Madrid in 1962 and now based in Geneva, La Ribot is a choreographer, dancer, director and visual artist; a radically multidisciplinary creator. Her work has its origins in movement, the body, and her own background in dance, to which she adds other practices, systems and materials as they become necessary. From the beginning of her career her work has included live performance, video, speech, sign language, found art, installations and ‘relational’ works. She has involved different communities in her performances and videos, both professional colleagues and people with no experience in the world of art.


Her works have been presented at the Tate Modern, London, the Centre Pompidou, Paris, the Panorama Festival, Rio de Janeiro, Impulstanz, Vienna and Art Basel. She was awarded the Spanish National Dance Prize in 2000 and The Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts in 2016 by the Spanish Ministry of Culture.

La Ribot is being supported by Ville de Genève, République et canton de Genève and Pro Helvetia – Schweizer Kulturstiftung.
