«Trilogía sobre la Guitarra is a project that is divided into three parts. Although designed to be performed in sequence, they are independent pieces, each one the result of a single exploration of the guitar as an essential element of flamenco, and whose power is enhanced when brought together.
The aim of this investigation was a detailed study of the guitar through a series of pieces. The trilogy opens with Inicio (Uno), which revolves around the exquisite touch of the maestro Riqueni. It is followed by Al fondo riela (Lo Otro del Uno), where Yerai Cortés and Eduardo Trassierra conduct a dialogue that explores the polyphonic possibilities of the instrument, incorporating counterpoint, harmony, rhythm… all of which make up their duet. The trilogy finishes with Vuelta al Uno, where Yerai Cortés’ guitar multiplies, sings and beats out a meter rooted in a dialogue between two bodies.
In three steps, Trilogía represents a Genesis, an origin story for the impulse to dance. An experience triangulated around the nexus of guitar and movement, bringing us closer to the consequences of each guitarist’s identity on the body and movement of Rocío Molina. This trilogy retraces the path of tradition in order to walk it again – and to discover the pure creative act that lies at its essence.
To turn these aims into reality, one must rediscover singularity in an as-yet-unexplored space. One must shut out noise in order to recover sound, silence knowledge to allow movement to recover its authenticity. One must empty oneself of all artifice in order to allow the essential to recover the power to fill, and forget everything learned in order to remember the present. Because ‘essence’ means ‘that which is’, that which is already here»
