Mathilde Monnier & La Ribot


Part of the RETROSPECTIVE LA RIBOT – Occuuppatiooon!

Duration 60 min

“Gustavia” brings together two choreographers with utterly divergent dance backgrounds who nevertheless are driven by common questions about the future of art and representation. Drawing on the techniques and codes of classical burlesque, Mathilde Monnier and La Ribot experiment with this art form of transformations and role reversals to test out its use in dance. With striking body language and a sense of humour, they also touch on timeless themes such as femininity, self-presentation and the theatre, in order to then ask the question of whether it is still possible today for an artist to exert an influence on society.
