Festival Flamenco Alburquerque 33 proudly presents Rocío Molina y Compañía in Caída del Cielo—one of flamenco’s most awarded and critically lauded performers in a show that has captivated audiences worldwide.

“This piece is a journey, a transit, a descent. Through lights and shadows, Rocío Molina, guided by her dance, which is intuition and substance, makes us fall into the silence, the music and the noise within unknown territories.

$45, $60, $75, $90

“What can be palpable and what is normally hidden from our view materializes in Rocío’s body. She dances and establishes a different relation with the earth. Her dance is born from her womb and the soil she kicks, and thus her dance becomes the celebration of being a woman.

“The flamenco style that she proposes for Caída del Cielo goes deep into her roots and, at the same time, brings those roots face to face with other languages and ways of interpreting the scene; in an undomesticated expression.

“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 happened with Dante in his Divine Comedy, but takes us to a place of deep freedom. In her journey, the soul is breaking, submerged into a dense and opaque sea, into a dark landscape full of lightning bugs that elevate us towards a dark paradise.

“This piece is a journey, a transit, a descent. From a body in balance to a body that celebrates being a woman, a body which is immersed in the tragic sense of the celebration.”
