‘The Two Fridas’

I can finally reveal my big news:

I have been aching to tell everyone about the exciting collaboration with Balbir Singh Dance Company and Billingham International Folklore Festival of World Dance- “The Two Fridas”.

The Two Fridas will be a beautiful dance and theatre performance encompassing the life and times of two of the art world’s most inspiring female figures, Frida Kahlo (Mexico) and Amrita Sher-Gil (Hungary / India). The idea for the piece is the imaginative work of Festival director Olga Maloney.

The project is being made possible with support by Arts Council England’s National Lottery Project Grants Programme.

Frida has always been an inspiration of mine and to be able to portray her is a dream come true ✨

The Bowes Museum kindly hosted our visit to mark the launch of the project, we will premiere ‘The Two Friads’ on 19th September 2020. https://www.thebowesmuseum.org.uk/Whats-On/Events/Event-Detail/ID/23001ARCVCNHNNNCLVMBNCMRGPKGBRCSK
