Famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s life will be set onstage with the bilingual, multidisciplinary play “Frida y su Reflejo” this Sunday, June 14, at the Nina Haggerty Centre for the Arts.

Directed by Marina Mair-Sánchez, the play revolves around Frida’s life, art, political beliefs, and her relationship with muralist Diego Rivera, and will be presented through dance, music, projection, and text.

The performances will be followed with a question and answer session with the playwright.

More information on the play can be found on the Theatre Alberta website.
