Frida! explores the life and work of the Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo. Artistic Director, Judy Bejarano and 8 dancers present an evening of dance theatre that explores Frida’s struggle and success. “Frida’s ability to construct her own identity, flaunt the constricts of what was considered proper in her time and overcome incredible obstacles in her short life provide rich material to draw from” says Bejarano. The program features rich and sensual movement and explores both the tragic and triumphant events that shaped her life.
