Caída del Cielo

Spanish choreographer Rocío Molina has coined her own artistic language based on a reinvented traditional flamenco style which respects its essence, but embraces the avant-garde. Radically free, she combines technical virtuosity, contemporary research and conceptual risk in her pieces. A graduate of the Royal Dance Conservatory in Madrid, Molina was awarded the National Award for Dance by the Spanish Ministry of Culture at age 26. Recently she was awarded the 2022 Gold Medal for Merit in Fine Arts from the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports, and the 2022 Silver Lion Award for Dance at the Venice Biennale.

In Caída del Cielo (Fallen From Heaven), Molina contrasts light and darkness, celestial and savage. Accompanied by a live band, Molina’s dancing goes deep into her roots while pushing the norms of movement and gender, making a loud declaration that flamenco is an expression of freedom that cannot and should not be domesticated.
