Mathilde Monnier / La Ribot

In ›Gustavia‹ Mathilde Monnier and La Ribot, two choreographers with distinctly different backgrounds but yet very similar thoughts and questions regarding the future of performance art, explore the techniques and codes of classical burlesque. Drawing on role reversal and metamorphosis and using the energetic body language of farce and their own characteristic sense of humour, the duo address timeless themes such as womanhood, death, theater, performance, self representation and ultimately ask a very serious question: can an artist today influence society?
