Experience The Frida...In one night you’ll be taken on the journey of love, lust, hurt, creativity and peace.
This unusual gallery event is a stimulating retrospective and a dynamic multidisciplinary showcase inspired by the legacy of Frida kahlo. On this eve we’ll take you places where abstraction meets realism in a historically relevant dance of female liberation using a delicate yet bold fusion of fine art forms to ensure an experience you won’t forget.
The underlying theme of Freedom through expression opens the doorway to a Modern interpretation of Frida Kahlo through the reflections of her work as a historical female figure; Feminist Icon, Human rights activist and Pioneering Avant-Garde Artist exhibited in conjunction with Women’s International Month 2013.
You’ll be treated with unique blend of spoken word artists, short film, live music and live art show ending in a dance & theatrical piece. This enchanted collaboration will leave you inspired and moved.
The evening will kick of with a Mexican inspired live folk music played to set the ambience and tone for the exhibition.
At 7:30pm the life size Frida portrait created with live objects and people will begin to morph and move. This metamorphosis will continue during the evening. The space and ambiance of the evening will be a replicate of Frida Kahlos studio in The Casa Azul, Coyoacan, Mexico.

The Dance piece will be informed by the conflict harboured as a result of the disintegration of the body. This dance is one of integration and resolve on the afterlife so to say. In some ways a physical reconciliation moving along the peripheral of reincarnation through modern dance: the 15 minute piece will combine traditional Mexican styles with West African movement. Performed by Pia Cabble with Live Music- Bumi Thomas.
There will also be an auction at the end of the evening.
