After a sell-out run and a Herald Angel Award at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2014, international performance artist and choreographer Caroline Bowditch brings her beautiful work “Falling in Love with Frida” to Dance Limerick on Friday 11 September at 8pm.
This intimate and enticing performance explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). Largely remembered for her artwork, the iconic images she created that explicitly document her lived experience of disability, Frida Kahlo is rarely remembered or acknowledged as a disabled artist. “Falling in Love with Frida” is a celebration: a reclaiming of a disabled artist, 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.
Falling in love with Frida is being presented at Dance Limerick as part of Elemental Arts & Culture Festival.
Fri 11 Sept, 8pm.
Tickets €12/€10 (conc) /€5 (student)
