Falling in Love with Frida

An intimate and enticing performance that explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954).

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 can we really control others' memories of us.

Where affinities and parallels are drawn, happy distractions are employed and a tale of  'the great concealer' is skillfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.

I know you so well.
I know the things you like to eat,
The clothes that hang inside your wardrobe,
I know where you sleep, the music you lay down to.
I've sat in your garden and at your table.
I know you left your mark on everything, including their hearts.
They all fell in love with you.
I've never met you, but I've done it too.

There will be a post-show talk: after the 6.30pm performance. All post show talks are BSL Interpreted and speech to text transcribed.

Sunday 7 September performance, Touch Tour starts at 2pm

Enter via the Queen Elizabeth Hall Artists' Entrance

‘deliciously wry, humorously conversational - and disarmingly frank’
