Synopsis


This is not a biography of Frida Kahlo.


There is nothing in this new production about her birth, adolescence, becoming.


This is a fight between two sides of the coin, a beautiful and cruel story, of the relationship between a man and a woman.


The show is about love that's all-consuming and burning, which gives a powerful incentive to live and create.


Frida and Diego fulfilled each other in the best possible way, however, they devoured each other.


It is the same passion, that makes two non-ideal rough bodies, one beautiful creature.


Frida, humiliated by life, is sent one test after another.


Death is a secret friend of Frida.


It is also her husband, lover, mistress, a clown and saviour.


Frida jokes, dances and enjoys her time with death.


It called for her from the age of 6.


Today Death has finally come to her …


Filled with sarcasm, black humour and a paranoid dance, to the music of composers such as Kurt Weill, Sofia Gubaidulina and Alfred Schnittke, this is Frida Kahlo, as you've never seen her before.
