Rocío Molina

Rocío Molina first stood on a stage under the direction of María Pagés at age 17. At 21, she created her first show, Entre paredes, establishing herself as a major flamenco artist in Spain, where she is seen as one of the best bailaoras of her generation. She has received numerous awards, including the National Award for Dance, for “her contribution to the renewal of flamenco, her flexibility and her strength as a performer able to master a large variety of styles with liberty and audacity.” She will make her first appearance at the Festival d'Avignon. Rocío Molina is an associate artist of the Chaillot – Théâtre National de la danse.
