Maria RIBAS

biography

I started my dance trainings when i was 5 years old. i was in 3 dance schools in Porto, my home town. In 2015 i finish my vocational course in Escola do Conservatório Nacional de Dança in Lisbon where i had the oportunity to participate in some competitions. In berlin, the Tanzolymp Competition where i won the 1st prize in contempory solo and in Valentina Kozlova International Ballet Competition in New York , the 2nd Prize in Contemporary and Choreography Junior Division. In 2016, when i was 18 i received my diploma of École Supérieure de Danse de Cannes Rosella Hightower in Cannes. In this same year i got the contract for BNM NEXT, stage of 1 year. My first contact with the company. As BNM NEXT we did Prossimo, Crisi and we were also integrated on Extremalism and Bolero with the dancers of the company. In 2017 i received the contract for the company.

For me "corp en revolt" is an unlimited search that this curious body does to find the most intime and truthfull being. Through a trip of creativity and my limits, physicaly, mentaly and emotionaly i find myself sunk in a commun energy mixed with the essence of each dancer. This special language of Emio brought me some questions for the answers that i already had.
