Frida and Herself

fridapostcard.jpg Until Sunday, the Anandam Performance Group performs Frida and Herself, a movement-based piece of puppet theatre based on the life and art of Frida Kahlo. Torontoist has only seen bits of the show workshopped, but we were particularly impressed by a sequence where Frida (played by Brandy Leary, also the company’s founder and artistic director) dances a tango with a life-size skeleton. Anandam performed the show to great acclaim at the New York Fringe Festival, making good enough to merit a mention in The New York Times.
Frida and Herself plays at the Artword Theatre (75 Portland St.) until Sunday, October 16th. $15, except for the pay-what-you-can Sunday matinee. Visit Anandam’s website for more info.
