JOIN US FOR THE FILM AND “TERTULIA FLAMENCA”, AN AFTER-FILM DISCUSSION FACILITATED BY DR. ERICA ACEVEDO-ONTIVEROS ABOUT THE MODERN/CONTEMPORARY FLAMENCO MOVEMENT.

ROCIO 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.
