Rocío Molina: Al Fondo Riela (Lo Otro del Uno)

The iconoclastic choreographer Rocío Molina has coined her own artistic language based on a reinvented traditional flamenco style which respects its essence, but embraces the avant-garde.
Dance House Helsinki presents the second part of Molina’s trilogy Trilogía sobre la Guitarra dedicated to the guitar. Al Fondo Riela (Lo Otro del Uno) delves into the dark side of the human psyche.
All transcendent moments are followed by a dark night of the soul. Beneath the slow passing of clouds, the dark, tumultuous sea rises to engulf everything. Atop it, Rocío Molina dances Al Fondo Riela, the antithesis of Inicio (Uno), the meeting with Lo otro de Uno (The Other). “On stage, I am accompanied by my own ego and two completely different guitarists. Eduardo Trassierra is harmony and technical complexity. Yerai Cortés is natural intuition. Al Fondo Riela is a piece about reflection and the loss of reality, a work where all the ghosts of my past emerge. You have to suffer through it to reach the third part, which will be a liberation.”
