After a sell-out run and a Herald Angel Award at the 2014 Edinburgh Fringe, Caroline Bowditch presents Falling in Love with Frida, an intimate and enticing performance exploring the life, love and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907 - 1954).

The work is a reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love-like obsession, and an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for and how much we can really control others' memories of us. It exposes many little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. Where affinities and parallels are drawn, happy distractions are employed and a tale of 'the great concealer' is skilfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.

"An hour of remarkable beauty and joyful humanity"

Following on from the success of the =dance strand, Sadler's Wells continues its commitment to presenting dance by deaf and disabled dance artists. 

Falling in Love with Frida was originally produced by Dance4, commissioned by Dance4 and SICK! Festival, supported by Creative Scotland, Made in Scotland, Arts Council England and Nottingham City Council
