ISOBEL RIPLEY

Performer & Choreographer

I graduated from London Contemporary Dance School with a first class degree and a passion for improvised performance, non-traditional performance spaces and interdisciplinary work. I am a member of movement girl band collective ‘The Yonis’, formed in February 2017. Also formed in 2017 was a successful collaborative partnership with filmmaker Harvey Cash which began my exploration into film and direction.
The outcome of this collaboration, film ‘Rip It Up’, in which I performed as well as choreographed and directed, was accepted to several international film festivals including Vancouver F-O-R-M Festival and Paris Short Film Festival. Towards the end of 2017 I also choreographed and directed a screen dance short for Random Acts by Channel 4, funded by Arts Council England. The outcome of this commission, I Am The Whale, has since been exhibited at the ICA London.
After discovering a flair for dramaturgy and critical feedback, I have worked with performance artist Lou Coleman as an associate artist, to develop the movement and performance element of her piece ‘I’ll Get a Chair!’, and with dance artist Bridget Lappin to develop her piece ‘Who’s Afraid of a Pussycat’ during a residency at Chisenhale Dance.
In my own work, be it dance, film or writing, I am drawn to creating stories that explore the intricacies and complexities of female power and femininity, and the necessity to give voice to vulnerability.
I am currently based between Exeter and London, and am proud to be a selected artist on the Swindon Dance Young Professionals Programme.
