Rocío Molina Al Fondo Riela

This event has passed
The stage looks like a calm sea and the backdrop like the sky. A single performer doing a backbend, is dressed in a full body leotard in navy and pink.

Rocío Molina returns with her trademark subversion of flamenco traditions.


She’s flamenco’s wildest radical – punk and glorious – a magnificent dancer whose range takes in the fiery intensity of traditional styles, surreal fantasy, and unpredictable humour
The Independent

Dressed in black and torn between two guitars, the renegade choreographer Rocío Molina opens the Flamenco Festival 2024 in her subversive style. Using the original flamenco trio – dance, song and guitar – Al Fondo Riela (it glimmers in the depths) is a piece about reflection and the loss of reality. This is a work where all the ghosts of Molina’s past emerge.

On stage, she is accompanied by two contrasting guitarists, Eduardo Trassierra with his traditional, technical skill, and Yerai Cortés with his innovative flair.

Molina returns after her appearance at the Flamenco Festival in 2019, the same year she won the Critics’ Circle National Dance award for outstanding female performance.

In 2022 the Venice Biennale has awarded the Silver Lion to Rocío Molina, the first flamenco dancer to be recognised by the prestigious Italian art festival.
