Más Distinguidas (Revival)

La Ribot  

"[La Ribot] is queen of incongruity, teaser of the mind and a very fine dancer." 
– Festival and Fringe, Adelaide, Australia

First performed by La Ribot in 1997, Más Distinguidas was the second in the series of her Distinguished Pieces. In this revival, she has invited dancer Ruth Childs to inherit her role, surprising new audiences with this seminal and pertinent work.

Thirteen short solo pieces, delicately constructed and often funny, lasting from thirty seconds to eight minutes each, present the body as an ‘l’objet d’art’. In each, the unclothed performer becomes absurdly entwined with a variety of everyday objects and clothing to create a witty confusion between bodies and inanimate stuff. From a rubber chicken and hand-held fan to a blue wig and cocktail dress, with references to Magritte, Yves Klein and John Cage, La Ribot gives us a wry take on the physical and sculptural nature of choreography.
