Declamando y Deambulando Con Frida
Free and open to the public
Redland Market Village // Homestead
Declamando y Deambulando Con Frida is a collaborative, interactive performance between Monica Sanchez, Zaholaix Hernandez and Jennifer Dibbe, drawing inspiration from Kahlo's The Two Fridas 1939 painting.
Through appropriate costume and song, a poetic ensemble based on Frida Kahlo and Angelina Beloff induces viewers into a literary exchange redefining both figures outside of their relationship with the Mexican muralist Diego Rivera.
Referencing a moment where the emancipation of women broke traditional models, these two personages offer alternate models for female autonomy. The performance will include readings from Kahlo's poetry in addition to excerpts from "Querido Diego, Te Abraza Quiela" by Elena Poniatowska, a reimagining of the unreciprocated letters sent by Beloff to Rivera while in exile in Paris.
