The iconoclastic 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 in her works: technical virtuosity, contemporary research, and conceptual risk. Unafraid to forge alliances with other disciplines and artists, her choreographies are unique scenic events based on ideas and cultural forms ranging from cinema to literature, including philosophy and painting.
Impulso is an intimate portrait of Molina, one of the dance world’s most passionate artists, as she travels the world to perform her improvised “impulsos” at unusual venues ranging from prisons to modern art museums. Now Molina must prepare for one of her most challenging works ever for a new show at Chaillot National Theater in Paris. Despite Molina’s unconventional stagings and artful theatrical setups, she remarkably manages to maintain her connection to Flamenco’s rich history and traditions. In Spanish with English subtitles.
“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)
“Impulso tells us one of the most captivating challenges in the history of modern Flamenco” Metacritic
