Rocío Molina

Caída del Cielo

Tanz im August

Spanish choreographer and dancer Rocío Molina is the great moderniser of flamenco, which she has mastered ever since her childhood. She combines technical virtuosity with an unbridled experimentalism. Her piece Caída del cielo is the journey of a woman searching for her roots, whose dance emanates from her womb and from the earth that she traverses with dynamic, thunderous heels. The piece combines untamed, virtuosic flamenco with a rock concert and performance art. Rocío Molina employs sensual imagery, tremendous energy, rousing rhythms and considerable clarity to take the audience on this epic journey.

Duration 90 Min

With kind support of Instituto Cervantes.
