Caída del Cielo,
17.–18. October 2017

New flamenco rooted in tradition.

The type of flamenco that Rocío Molina proposes in Caída del Cielo has something important, she goes deep into her roots and at the same time, freely, she brings her style of flamenco face to face with other languages and ways of interpreting the scene; while being aware that flamenco is an expression of freedom, and it cannot be and should not be domesticated.

This piece is a journey, a descent. We are witness to the journey of a woman, guided by her dance, which is intuition and substance, through lights and shadows, and with her we fall into the silence, the music and the noise within unknown territories. In our presence: what can be palpable and what it is normally hidden from our view materializes in Rocío’s body. She dances and establishes a different relation with the earth and so you have the feeling that her dance is born from her womb and the soil she kicks, and thus her dance becomes the celebration of being a woman.

This descent or fall is the one-way journey of a woman, but Rocío does not lead us to the inverted image of The Fallen Angel, as it happened to Dante in his “Divine Comedy”, but she takes us to a place of deep freedom. In her journey, it seems that her soul is breaking and that we are submerged into a dense and opaque sea, a dark landscape full of lightning bugs that guide and elevate us as we fall, towards a dark paradise and a colorful darkness in constant movement.

In conclusion, this piece is the journey, descent or transit of a woman who goes from having a body which is in balance to having a body that celebrates being a woman, a body which is immersed in the tragic sense of the celebration. 

Ms. Molina is so full of contradictory highlights that I don’t know where to start or stop.
