Colourful ode to an iconic artist
‘Breathtaking explosion of colour’. That is how Theaterkrant described the world premiere of Annabelle Lopez Ochoa’s Frida, in 2020. The production, which is now in demand internationally, tells the life story of one of the most intriguing artists of the twentieth century: the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Along with designer Dieuweke van Reij and composer Peter Salem, Lopez Ochoa made the magic of Kahlo’s world tangible in her ballet.
