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.
