From knee to heart (2018) is a documentary about the dancer Sol Picó. From the dancer under the spotlight to her reality behind the scenes, the documentary approaches Sol Pico’s daily life at a crucial moment in her career after winning the National Dance Award.
The strength of her movement, but also the fineness of the rhythmic changes of her dance, forms a very personal language which links contemporary dance with elements of other worlds, creating, in this way, an own and particular iconography with sense of humour always in mind. The documentary will also go across Sol Picó’s artistic career, from the beginning of her performance, to the street theatre and, finally, her artistic consolidation and the creation of her own company. Her work is characterized by showing a strong and brave woman but who is not afraid of showing her weaknesses without taboos. The project also brings the artist’s more personal side closer: the difficulties of growing up as a dancer, the difficulties of creation and how to face her career after turning 50
