Molina, Rocío

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. Radically free, she combines in her works: technical virtuosity, contemporary research and conceptual risk. Unafraid to forge alliances with other disciplines and artists, her choreographies are unique scenic events based on ideas and cultural forms ranging from cinema to literature, including philosophy and painting. Rocío Molina, a restless dancer, was born in Malaga in 1984. She started to dance at the early age of three years old. At seven, she was outlining her first choreographies. At 17, she graduated with honors at the Royal Dance Conservatory in Madrid and became part of the cast of professionals companies with international tours.


At 22, she premiered « Entre paredes » (Among the Walls), her first work, which was followed by many more self-creations, all of them with a thing in common, a curious and transgressor look at a flamenco style escaping from the well-trodden paths: « El Eterno Retorno » (The Eternal Return, 2006) « Turquesa como el limón » (Turquoise as a Lemon, 2006), « Almario » (2007), « Por el decir de la gente » (As People Say, 2007), « Oro viejo » (Old Gold, 2008), « Cuando las piedras vuelen » (When Stones Fly,2009), « Vinática » (2010), « Danzaora y vinática » (2011), « Afectos » (Affections) (2012) and « Bosque Ardora » (Ardora’s Forest,2014).


She’s been associated with the Chaillot National Theater in Paris since 2015. She presents two impulsos or public improvisations in the Grand Foyer of Chaillot. In November 2016, she created in Chaillot "Caída del Cielo". The Chaillot National Theater ’s audience discovered Rocío Molina in 2008 with « Mujeres », the following year with « Cuando Las Piedras Vuelen » and then in 2013 with the solo « Danzaora » at the first Biennale of flamenco art. In March 2015, during the second edition of this festival, she dances alongside the hip hop dancer Honji Wang in Sébastien Ramirez's « Fealhikum » show and reinterpret her show « Bosque Ardora », created in Seville a few months ago.


Rocío Molina, a versatile dancer, is one of the Spanish artists with greater international repercussion. Her works have been performed not only in theaters and festivals such as Sadler’s Wells Theatre, but also in renowned temples of flamenco such as Seville’s Flamenco Biennial. Throughout her career, not only has she worked with great national flamenco leading figures such as: María Pagés, Miguel Poveda, Chano Lobato, Pastora Galván, Manuel Liñán, Belén López, Manuela Carrasco, Antonio Canales or Israel Galván, but also with leading figures of contemporary performing arts, such as Carlos Marquerie, Mateo Feijóo or Sebastién Ramírez.

Picq, Charles

Author, filmmaker and video artist Charles Picq (1952-2012) entered working life in the 70s through theatre and photography. A- fter resuming his studies (Maîtrise de Linguistique - Lyon ii, Maîtrise des sciences et Techniques de la Communication - grenoble iii), he then focused on video, first in the field of fine arts at the espace Lyonnais d'art Contemporain (ELAC) and with the group « Frigo », and then in dance.
   On creation of the Maison de la Danse in Lyon in 1980, he was asked to undertake a video documentation project that he has continued ever since. During the ‘80s, a decade marked in France by the explosion of contemporary dance and the development of video, he met numerous artists such as andy Degroat, Dominique Bagouet, Carolyn Carlson, régine Chopinot, susanne Linke, Joëlle Bouvier and regis Obadia, Michel Kelemenis. He worked in the creative field with installations and on-stage video, as well as in television with recorded shows, entertainment and documentaries.

His work with Dominique Bagouet (80-90) was a unique encounter. He documents his creativity, assisting with Le Crawl de Lucien and co-directing with his films Tant Mieux, Tant Mieux and 10 anges. in the 90s he became director of video development for the Maison de la Danse and worked, with the support of guy Darmet and his team, in the growing space of theatre video through several initiatives:
       - He founded a video library of dance films with free public access. This was a first for France. Continuing the video documentation of theatre performances, he organised their management and storage.
       - He promoted the creation of a video-bar and projection room, both dedicated to welcoming school pupils.
       - He started «présentations de saisons» in pictures.
       - He oversaw the DVD publication of Le tour du monde en 80 danses, a pocket video library produced by the Maison de la Danse for the educational sector.

       - He launched the series “scènes d'écran” for television and online. He undertook the video library's digital conversion and created Numeridanse.


His main documentaries are: enchaînement, Planète Bagouet, Montpellier le saut de l'ange, Carolyn Carlson, a woman of many faces, grand ecart, Mama africa, C'est pas facile, Lyon, le pas de deux d'une ville, Le Défilé, Un rêve de cirque.
