"FK, fantasy about Frida Kahlo", a Cuban theater production of the ensemble “Teatro de la Utopia”

21 November 2023

As part of the program of the Havana International Theater Festival, Teatro Utopia presented "FK, fantasy about Frida Kahlo" in Pinar del Río, directed by the experienced Reynaldo León, on November 18th and19th, 2023. The work has been played many times since its premiere in March 2022.

Reynaldo Leon, who also shared production direction, declared, "This is a monologue, but it has a very special dramatic invoice and contains a series of dialogues, because this character is Frida Kahlo, interpreted by death and death in the popular image." Yuliet Montes, the lead actress, co-stars with her.
Juliet is placed in two spaces by this proposal: the space of death and the space of Frida as seen through the lens of death. She emphasized, "I think this text, so difficult for an actor, has been interpreted masterfully and with admirable professional patience," concurring with critics who dubbed her one of the most sensitive actresses in the Cuban film industry.

Reynaldo Leon claims that Raul Capote's digital acting assistance is integrated into the magical and fantastical elements of the production.

The lengthy journey of a year-long play is a rich process for a playwright. "Since the audience varies with each performance, the play is altered accordingly. After a few shows, the audience provides the best scenic objectives. That is what happens when creative work is done."
