ART VIEW Festival "Women in Art" dedicates one day to Frida Kahlo (Pisa - Italy)

09 May 2024

Frida Kahlo will be celebrated on Saturday, May 18, with events including a theater/dance performance and a musical appointment.

At 6:00 pm the music group Madaus will present "Frida", which is their third album entirely dedicated to the figure of Frida Kahlo, with four original songs and four covers of Chavela Vargas' repertoire. The concert is an unfinished journey that started in New York, with the colours of Mexico and Mediterranean sounds, and is a journey of traditional songs, unreleased songs, roots and passion.

At 9:00 pm the play-documentary by Manfredi Gelmetti, inspired by the life and times of Frida Kahlo, "Frida Kahlo bailando a la vida".

The show is a journey into the tormented intimacy of the painter, into her struggle with herself for survival, for the acceptance of a life marked by an incurable disease, by her tormented love for Diego Rivera.
In this performance, dance becomes the protagonist, witness and salvation of Frida, narrated by the director himself through the fusion of words, music and flamenco.
The spectator will accompany Frida through her cathartic journey, reliving moments of her earthly existence through the words and memories of Diego Rivera, El Panzòn.
Frida, an artist who knew how to transform her torments into masterpieces, a woman who made art out of her life by declaring war on pain.
With this performance, the director and the performers on stage relive and declare their most heartfelt: "Viva la vida!"
