Artist: Caroline Bowditch
Presenter: Outlandish Arts
An intimate and enticing performance exploring the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo. After a sell-out run and the Herald Angel Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2014, Outlandish Arts and Riverside Theatres presents Caroline Bowditch's Falling In Love With Frida.
It is a reclaiming of the disabled artist, and the show explores Frida Kahlo as role-model, and woman of fluid sexuality. It is 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.
