Rocío Molina draws on deep animal instincts to explore the struggle for survival in the natural world. Two male dancers and six musicians will accompany her onstage as she integrates movement, drama, sound looping and a contemporary aesthetic that raises questions about how we think about flamenco in the modern world.
Rocío Molina began dancing at the age of 3, and by the age of 11 she had won prizes in national dance contests. She has since received copious international praise, with The New York Times calling her one of the finest soloists in the world today.
