Pine Islands audiences discover “Frida”—a conversation between dance, theatre, music and visual effects directed by Marie Tholon

cartell 2020 frida 2From the frontlines of new theatre comes a code-and genre-bending dramatisation —inspired by paintings and diary entries— of the life of iconic Mexican painter Frida Kahlo.

Frida invites audiences on a tour of the periods and tribulations marking the life of Frida Kahlo. Gender equality; Kahlo the artist; a life on the margins of society and Kahlo’s struggle to come to terms with an irrational love for husband Diego Rivera... these are the themes that spring up in succession throughout Kahlo’s life.

Minimalist and contemporary, the set of Frida comes to life in intimate, poetic and evocative spaces that cry out for reflection. Music ranges from Mexican influences —Kahlo’s friend Chavela Vargas, Lila Downs and Lhasa all log appearances—to more contemporary melodies (contributions come from Icelandic composer Olafur Arnalds and French contemporary Yann Tiersen).

Crowds at Eivissa’s Auditori de Cas Serres can catch a production of Frida Friday 6 November at 8.30pm. Tickets are available in advance for €8 at www.eivissacultural.es or at the box office the day of the function for €12. The troupe visits Formentera the following day, offering an 8.30pm performance of the show in the Sala de Cultura (Cinema). Tickets for viewers over 25 cost €7 and youth pay €5. Space is limited, so make your booking in advance by emailing reserves@conselldeformentera.cat.

The troupe
Diàlegs d’Art represent the union of professional stage artists with pieces and materials whose life force emanates from the convergence of ideas and styles, from the quest for theatrical innovation and from creative encounters with artists and artist collectives.

El temps passa, Frida and H2O are among the productions the Menorca-based group has put out since forming in 2016.

Diàlegs d’Art are driven in the creative process by the blending and crossbreeding of theatrical formats, leveraging the admixture to interrogate the expressive form inherent in art such as live music, dance, theatre and audiovisual performance.
