FRIDA, THE MUSE OF LIFE – PREMIERE DEC. 2022

EVA DUDA DANCE CO. and the NATIONAL DANCE THEATRE BUDAPEST presents:

 

FRIDA, THE MUSE OF LIFE

 

premiere in December 2022

Frida Kahlo has Hungarian roots on her father’s side, but people mainly know her for her ties to Mexico. She has a major influence still on our everyday life, people are connected and attracted to her in many ways, she is an icon, a star whose life life was full of many tragedies but still has a lot to teach about the love and faith in life.

Building on the rich expressiveness of music and dance, the performance tells through images about the exotic South America, magical realism, passionate loves, huge carnivals, an impressive culture, and some defining moments of Frida’s life emerge. The performance does not tell the life story of Frida Kahlo, but instead presents an independent dance work inspired by her and her artistic works, about a colorful and lively world that is completely different from the European one. The dance is complemented by spectacular scenes interspersed with circus elements, unfolding the cavalcade of life-affirmation so characteristic of Mexican culture.

Our goal and task is to dignify the intellectual legacy of such a great artist, to keep the twists and turns of her life, and the magical power of her wonderful paintings, leading the production both entertaining and yet profound.
