Las Fridas is a 60-minute, 16-section duet choreographed and directed by Mark DeGarmo. It is a love letter to Mexico, an offering to painter and revolutionary Frida Kahlo, and a celebration of Kahlo's life and artwork. The sum of the work's two parts suggests a new art form, inspired by the duality of sun and moon, mother and child, sacred and secular, ancient and current as they appear in Kahlo's artwork.
The transcultural, transdisciplinary work breaks boundaries between dance, theater, visual arts, music, performance art, video, nations and nationalities.
New York critics heralded Las Fridas as "brilliant." Audience members noted that DeGarmo's finely crafted, meticulously detailed works "do nothing, while doing everything." Audience members said that they were going home immediately to do everything they always wanted to do after witnessing this show.
In offering this work for public viewing, DeGarmo pays homage to his mothers, grandmothers, mentors and friends, including renowned choreographers and dance educators Anna Sokolow and Hanya Holm, educational theorist Maxine Greene, and Living Theatre Co-Founder Judith Malina. Video projections and votive offerings of Maxine Greene's hands at 93 and Judith Malina's feet at 88 are incorporated into the multimedia presentation.
These installments will be performed by Mark DeGarmo and Marie Baker-Lee.
