Alice Ripoll / REC


Created in 2017, shortly after the Olympic Games and the Football World Cup in Rio, aCORdo by Alice Ripoll is an investigation into the impact on the city of major events, always from the point of view of those who live on its fringes. Four dancers from the favelas of Rio bring to life the often invisible actions of their daily lives, on the stage of the Grand Salon of the Villa Medici. 


Alice Ripoll is a choreographer based in Rio de Janeiro. She directs two dance groups, REC and SUAVE. She investigates the relationships between contemporary dance, theater, performance and Brazilian urban dances. Her shows have been presented in numerous festivals and theaters in Brazil and abroad, such as Panorama Festival, Rencontres Chorégraphiques de Seine-Saint-Denis, Zurich Theater Spektakel, Kunstenfestivaldesarts, Centre Pompidou, HAU, Wiener Festwochen and others.
