Artifact Dance Project takes on the life and spirit of the legendary artist, Frida Kahlo, in a moving collaboration with musicians Lane Harmon and Roger King, who brought the project to choreographer Ashley Bowman. Frida’s powerful artwork and complicated journey with her partner, painter and muralist Diego Rivera, influences the staging, music and costuming. The music, written by Harmon and King, is inspired by Frida’s artistically potent self-representations, her playfulness and humor, and her bold and courageous understanding of physical and psychological pain. Together, Bowman and Harmon interpret a raw and emotional side of one of the most famous women in recent history. Claire Hancock dances the role of Frida, showing the intensity and deeply human qualities of this iconic woman. Actor David Alexander Johnston portrays Diego Rivera. A large cast of dancers and musicians bring the story to life. With its universal resonance, Frida provokes thought through music and movement.
