New York critics heralded Las Fridas as “brilliant.”
Starting November 1st – experience Las Fridas: a dance-theater duet inspired by Mexican painter and revolutionary, Frida Kahlo. Don’t miss your chance to see the original cast perform the piece for the first time in 3 ½ years in its original, intimate setting: Studio 310.
Las Fridas is a 60-minute, 16-section duet choreographed and directed by Mark DeGarmo. It is a love letter to Mexico, an offering to painter and revolutionary Frida Kahlo, and a celebration of Kahlo’s life and artwork. The sum of the work’s two parts suggests a new art form, inspired by the duality of sun and moon, mother and child, sacred and secular, ancient and current as they appear in Kahlo’s artwork.
The transcultural, transdisciplinary work breaks boundaries between dance, theater, visual arts, music, performance art, video, nations and nationalities.
