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
