A Performance Inspired by the Life of Frida Kahlo

Frida Kahlo - one of the most fascinating and dazzling women in the history of art, a pop icon, a feminist icon, the most famous Mexican artist and known as much for her art as for her corsets. Extraordinary!

But: Why do her paintings leave such a strong impression on us? Where from comes the depth of her penetrating eyes?

And: Why did she feel lonely and unloved her entire life? From where did she get the strength for her work? Why didn't she find any balance in herself? Why did she choose that man? That man, which she portrays as Judas, the traitor,  and yet she still dedicated her most wonderful poems to him. Why did this happen?
