WRITTEN AND DIRECTED BY EMILIO BELMONTE

Rocίo Molina is all of 32 years old: an avant-garde performance artist/flamenco dancer with a dash of Björk and Pina Bausch thrown in for good measure. Often onstage alone, her work grows from the flamenco tradition but she infuses it with a modern, magnetic passion: crawling through red paint (suggestive of menstrual blood or the aftermath of a violent crime) or moving to a hard-driving rock beat. At times her look is minimal, almost Japanese in its austerity; at other times her performance suggests a sexy, plump fruit, ripe and edible. Emilio Belmonte follows Molina as she rehearses for her Paris debut at the Chaillot National Theater. She is never less than a force of nature.

Reviews

“One of Spain’s finest flamenco dancers, with the power to still an audience with her staccato footwork and spiralling turns. As a choreographer, her ambitious ideas have earned her respect across dance.”
– Judith Mackrell, The Guardian (UK)
