Launch season_505

“Number one of the TOP 10 shows not to be missed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival!” FRINGE REVIEW

“It’s been a long time since Theatre connected with me this viscerally and at so many levels… This performance will haunt you.” THE SCOTSMAN*****

AUSTRALIAN PREMIERE

EXCLUSIVE TO THE OLD 505 THEATRE

On the Day of the DeadFrida Kahlo is cooking and while she waits for her guests to arrive, she evokes Diego Rivera, Nelson Rockefeller, Leon Trotsky, exposes her opinion on art, Mexico, the United States, France and of course, the memory of her terrible accident and the presence of death.

Humberto Robles’s seminal work Viva La Vida, inspired by authentic documents, materials and memoirs from Frida Kahlo, reveals the woman behind the icon, the artist beyond the face printed on millions of bags, wallets and other paraphernalia.

This “mesmerising and compelling show is a treat by any theatrical standards. A must-see.” London Theatre Guide.
