Spanish dance at Dance Umbrella
11 Oct - 28 Nov|
Rocio Molina and dance companies La Macana and Maduixa Teatre are part of the 2017 program of Dance Umbrella, London’s international dance festival that celebrates 21st century choreography across the capital.
Rocío Molina’s latest work Fallen from Heaven (Caída del Cielo), takes the public on a very personal journey through womanhood. With designs ranging from a virginal confection, to matador jackets, to some inventive uses of leather, the piece is at times intensely raw and at others extremely witty.
