Joy Alpuerto Ritter  took her inspiration for Babae, which means “woman” in tagalog, from the choreography Witch dance by Mary Wigman, to stage a show that celebrates female power using the figure of the witch. While playing with the artistic elements and cultural practices of the different places that belong to her, the choreographer creates a rite that has a strong mystical charge, and which also combines the folk dances of her Filipino roots with some elements of Western dance: from classic to contemporary, from hip hop to voguing. Selected as one of the best works of the year by Aerowaves 2020, Babae is a ritual dance that celebrates life and its more spiritual side.    

Joy Alpuerto Ritter is a choreographer and dancer of Filipino descent who was born in Los Angeles and raised in Germany. She is a multifaceted artist that studied ballet and jazz at the Royal Academy of Dancing and learned traditional Filipino and Polynesian dances from her mother. She then expanded her repertoire with hip hop, break dance and voguing. In 2011 she joined Cirque du Soleil for the Michael Jackson Immortal World Tour. She was a dancer and director of the Akram Dance Company and has collaborated with international artists such as Florence and The Machine. Her dance solo Babae was selected as one of the best works of the year by Aerowaves 2020.
