FRIDA: MY TWO ACCIDENTS
Date: 9 June 2023
Venue: Pjazza Teatru Rjal
“There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.”
– Frida Kahlo
With Choreography by Diane Portelli, Frida is synonymously famous for her provoking art, however this performance focuses more on the duality between the fragility of her body and her strength of character and will. Frida was fiery, with a passion for her Mexican roots; even wanting to be called a ‘child of the revolution’. She was a woman who survived a terrible accident which broke her body, suffered the pain and loss of multiple miscarriages but most of all felt the heartbreak of disloyalty by her beloved Diego; even with her own sister. Through all of this, painting was her solace. She painted her gruesome reality, and these paintings are the legacy of what could be considered one of the most ground-breaking women of her time. Frida: My Two Accidents is a Moveo Dance Company production and is supported by Arts Council Malta.
