Alice Ripoll

Zona Franca

Alice Ripoll continues with her chronicle of Brazil and its favelas. She gives life to a party with a mix of Passinho, Contact Dance, Dance Theatre, Vocal Research, Afro, Afro-House, Sabala, Tik-Tok, and even the dances of the North and North-East of Brazil (such as Brega Funk). Zona Franca paints the portrait of lives, landscapes and fragments of a world and of a country that seem to always be reborn from the ashes.


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.
