ALICE RIPOLL CRIA
We are CRIA, not created. Little breeds. Loneliness. To smear yourself. The act, the creation and its moment. Sprout. The heart saying, “hit me” with every punch of suffering. In scene birth and death. Each time. Even in childbirth there is a force that wants to give up.
A life that begins touches the sublime.
Why so many children? Because you are going to kill some.
Self-made man. Breed from a poor community.
The boy is the man’s father. I lick my breed, who teaches me as parents, and completes – this hate that consumes me.
Before the final form there was the orgy, the sex, the pulse, the desires that confuse themselves; How dancing is erotic! The invitation of the body that dances and creates is for you to glide where life springs. And when every little bit wants to insist?
Relationships create movements, and here the newborn dance is the daughter of our affections.
In Portuguese the word CRIA (Breed) has two literary meanings: young being, animal or human and also the verb to create – In Brazil it is commonly used to express in which slum someone was born: “I’m CRIA from Complexo”.

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: Kampnagel – Internationales Sommerfestival, Zurich Theater Spektakel, Noorderzon Performing Arts, Rencontres Chorégraphiques Internationales de Saine-Saint-Denis; Projeto Brazil (in 4 cities in Germany: HAU in Berlin, Hellerau in Dresden, Tanzhaus in Düsseldorf and Mousonturm in Frankfurt), Centre National de la Danse (Paris), Festival de La Cité Lausanne, Norrlandsoperan (Umeå) and Kunstenfestivaldesarts (Brussels).
