La Ribot offers here a piece about work and productivity, about how this choreographic work may inserts itself in the chain of production. By putting into place a collaborative method, we are led to question the articulation between the individual as a subjective body and machinery, be it choreographic, industrial or social.

How do dancers, workers of the stage, elements of an economy based on the exchange of physical goods (bodily strength and merchandise), integrate the context of immaterial production ?

For this creation she has continued her research in laughter, as with her preceding pieces (40 espontáneos in 2004, and Laughing Hole 2006).


La Ribot is a choreographer and performer, as well as being a visual and video artist.
Over the years, her work has been shown in numerous thea- ters, art galleries and museums throughout the world, such as the Tate Modern in London, the Pompidou Center and the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris, and the Museo Reina Sofia in Madrid.
From the beginning of the 1990’s, she has worked progressi- vely on building a very distinct and personal body of work, in which an important role is reserved for Distinguished Pieces : short solos which explore the limits between performance dance and visual arts.
She has acquired renown in the world of theater through her performances concerning the codes around striptease and burlesque, as in Gustavia (2008), a duet with Mathilde Monnier, as well as with her projects based on the role of extras, as in 40 espontáneos (2004), in which she questions the idea of being a spectator. In 2009, she creates Llàmame Mariachi and PARAdistinguidas in 2011.
