‘Al Fondo Riela’ by Rocío Molina

4 June | Sadler’s Wells | London

La bailaora y coreógrafa malagueña Rocío Molina, León de Plata de la Danza 2022 en la Bienal de Venecia

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.
