Alice Ripoll

Alice Ripoll was born in Rio de Janeiro. She was studying to be a psychoanalyst at age 21, and took a deviant path to start study dance, once she felt very curious about possibilities of the bodies and movement research. Alice graduated at Angel Vianna's school, which is a very important center for dance and motor rehabilitation, and started to work as a choreographer.

She directed many pieces, performed a few pieces - mostly of herself, and also worked with actors and circus artist. Currently her work embraces contemporary dance and urban dance styles from Brazil, through a research that opens space for the dancers to transform into images the experiences and memories that still live in each one. Alice directs two groups: REC and SUAVE.

Her shows have been performed in several festivals in Brazil, such as Panorama Festival, Bienal SESC de Dança, Dança Gamboa Festival, Ceará Dance Biennial and Trisca - Arts Festival for Children, and abroad: Rencontres Chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint-Denis, Zurich Theater Spektakel, Kunstenfestivaldesarts,  Centre Pompidou, HAU, Wiener Festwochen, Festival Dias da Dança and others.
