a word that inevitably
refers to the act of becoming flesh,
to the possibility
of being touched.

Carnación is a performance by Rocío Molina in collaboration with Niño de Elche, Olalla Alemán, Pepe Benítez, Maureen Choi on stage, and co-directed by Juan Kruz Díaz de Garaio Esnaola.

Through this, we find ourselves facing a search concerned with desire. It emerges from a sense of intuition whose origin and meaning is related to a condition which can only be found through the body. Care, repression, tenderness and violence; a carnal relationship from which images emerge that are capable of restoring a past that we do not understand. In attempting to do so, both its most carnal and its most transcendental forms are revealed as two sides of the same coin himself. As sweetness and bitterness, as fullness and emptiness, desire reminds us of the vulnerability of the human condition.

Rocío Molina

The word carnación refers in pictorial language to the process of coloration of the flesh. On the one hand, it leads us to think of the passage from the imaginary to the visible, from what is hidden to what is shown. While on the other, it is inevitable to think of the biblical idea of incarnation. A term that, within the language of this piece, takes on the form of desire.
