Since 2005 she has been working with many different artists including Jean-Marc Heim, Foofwa d'Imobilité, Jozsef Trefeli, Massimo Furlan. Gilles Jobin, La Ribot, Marco Berrettini and Yasmine Hugonnet.

In 2014 she started to develop her own work through performance, film and music and founds her company SCARLETT'S, and her band SCARLETT'S FALL with Stéphane Vecchione (scarlettsfall.com).

Ruth and Stéphane will present their first creation for stage The Golfish and the Inner Tube from April 11 to 15, 2018 at ADC in Geneva.

Alongside her own projects she is working on a series of revivals of her aunt, Lucinda Childs' early work from the 1960s and 70s. Both series of this project are on tour at the moment: Pastime, Carnation, Museum Piece and Calico Mingling/Katema/Reclining Rondo/Particular Reel.



Calico Mingling/Katema/Reclining Rondo/Particular Reel
Four pieces by Lucinda Childs re-created by Ruth Childs.

In 2016, Lucinda Childs transmitted to Ruth Childs 3 solos that she choreographed and danced in the 1960s at Judson Church in New York. From this first program Pastime, Carnation, Museum Piece was born the desire to collaborate on a wider project, integrating the pieces from the 70s in which appear three founding elements in Lucinda Childs’ work: the use of a score, a path in a space and a rhythm imposed without music.

Ruth Childs/Stéphane Vecchione.
Premiered from April 11th to 15th 2018 at ADC, Genève.

“With this performance project we would like to create and offer a collection of situations which we will construct and deconstruct in front of an audience using our bodies, objects, materials, sounds, space and a given time. We will be workers, performers, spectators and even objects, thus constantly playing with our functions.” Ruth Childs and Stéphane Vecchione
