Rocío Molina

Caída del Cielo
Big Stage
20.04.2019 – 21.04.2019
Flamenco Tänzerin mit schwarzem Hut und knapper Kleidung auf einer weißen Bühne.

In her play “Caída del Cielo” – roughly translated as “Fell From The Sky” -, choreographer and dancer Rocío Molina describes one woman’s quest for her roots, with her dance originating in her femininity as well as in the Earth she is kicking with her fervently pounding heels. Deeper and deeper she works her way into the layers of the sensual and the prudent, the grotesque and the beautiful. She intertwines untamed Flamenco, a rock concert and performance art. In beguiling images, with enormous energy, sweeping rhythms and great clarity, Rocío Molina takes the audience on her journey. The powerful performance, accompanied by singing, electronic beats, drums and electric bass was invited to renowned Berlin festival “Tanz im August” and will now guest at tanzhaus nrw.

Rocío Molina developed her own artistic language, based on a radical reinvention of Flamenco. In her works, she combines technical virtuosity, contemporary research and conceptual risk-taking. Rocío Molina received her education at the Madrid Royal Conservatory and has been associated artist at the Théâtre National de Chaillot, Paris, since 2015.

Duration: 120 min.
