PEACOCK PRODUCTIONS AND OUTLANDISH ARTS PRESENT
FALLING IN LOVE WITH FRIDA
HERALD ANGEL AWARD,
EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE
An intimate and enticing performance exploring the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954).
After a sell-out run and Herald Angel Award at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, Caroline Bowditch presents Falling In Love With Frida.
It is a reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, and an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for and how much we can really control others’ memories of us. It exposes many little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. Where affinities and parallels are drawn, happy distractions are employed and a tale of ‘the great concealer’ is skilfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.
– “Remarkable beauty and joyful humanity.” – The Herald
Please Note: This production contains adult themes, sexual references, coarse language and tequila. Recommended for ages 16+
