Rebaño sinfónico

Moon Ribas & Quim Girón

Saturday 4 May 12 p.m.
Sunday 5 May 12 p.m.
On the move, Saturday and Sunday around the City of Culture

Rebaño sinfónico (Symphonic Flock) is an open-air show that invites the audience to graze with Moon Ribas (cyborg artist) and Quim Girón (acrobat), performers of the piece. Each person in the audience carries a loudspeaker as if it were an electronic cowbell, so that the sound of the show is in constant movement thanks to the walking of the spectators. Together, the audience and the artists form and deform choreographies in each scene. Joan Cot, musician and soul of this orchestra, manipulates the whole sound universe created. Rebaño sinfónico is a medium, a people, an instrument, a ceremony… that invokes the gregarious sense and the animal instinct within the human being.

Moon Ribas and Quim Girón

Moon Ribas and Quim Girón’s collaboration began in 2019 with the motivation to mix performing arts with cybernetics. This common ground led them to create projects such as Fenomen (2021) or Sentit de l’embaràs (2022), which allowed Quim to be “digitally pregnant” and connected to his son’s embryo during Moon’s pregnancy. From this project they made two performative interventions, one at the Smithsonian American Art Museum in Washington and the other as part of the International Symposium on Electronic Art 2022 programme in Mataró.

Moon Ribas (Mataró, 1985). – Cyborg artist and choreographer. For almost seven years she wore implants in her feet that allowed her to sense the earth’s seismic movements in real time through vibrations in her body. Her work is based on investigating movement in a deeper way through the use of technology, and exploring the limits of her body, her identity and art. Her way of expressing this new perception is to make the Earth the choreographer and composer of her pieces. In 2010 she co-founded the Cyborg Foundation.

Quim Girón (Barcelona, 1985). – Founder and artistic director of the company Animal Religion (2012), focused on the research of new languages within contemporary circus. The company has won several awards, including the Premio Especial Ciutat de Barcelona for the show Sifonòro in 2016. Graduated in DOCH from the Stockholm University of Dance and Circus, where he received the Sophie Hulten scholarship for his creativity, risk-taking and skill as a circus performer.
