An intimate and enticing performance by one of the UK’s leading disabled artists, Caroline Bowditch, that explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Dance, song, humour and storytelling weave a tale of Frida, ‘the great concealer’, whose secrets are skilfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.
“Falling in Love with Frida is a sensual, funny and haunting piece of work. I raise a glass of tequila to you Caroline. You have certainly left your mark.”
Victoria Wright Disability Arts Online
“It’s not often that you see a performance which fundamentally alters your view of the world.”
Sarah Kent, London Dance
Falling in Love with Frida is the reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, asking how we can shape what we are remembered for and how much we can really control others’ memories of us.
Caroline Bowditch, Welly O’Brien and Marta Masiero, with BSL interpreter Yvonne Strain.
