Trailblazing Spanish dancer Rocio Molina returns to Dance Umbrella following her 2014 Olivier nominated performance in Bosque Ardora. Her newest piece, Fallen from Heaven (Caida del Cielo), borrows from feminine, masculine and animalistic codes to give a very personal performance about womanhood. With just a bare stage and four musicians Molina strips flamenco down to its purest form: a passionate and exhilarating expression of freedom. Provocative and playful images emerge as she adopts different guises and outlandish costumes. Fallen from Heaven (Caida del Cielo) is a physically demanding progression from shadow to light, silence to sound, order to chaos. Multi award-winning dancer and choreographer Rocio Molina has garnered great international acclaim for her bold reinvention of flamenco, her sublime artistry and technical prowess. Her work has been performed in some of the world's most prestigious theatres and festivals and her collaborators include the great leading figures in traditional flamenco as well as contemporary practitioners. Fallen From Heaven (Caida del Cielo) recently won the 2017 Awards for Best Female Dancer, Choreography and Lighting Design at the Spanish Max Awards for the Performing Arts.
