Casa Azul
Donlon Dance Company

Marguerite Donlon creates a piece inspired by the life and work of the Mexican painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954). The title of the piece, "Casa Azul", relates to the "blue house", the house where Frida Kahlo was born, which was an important place of retreat into private life for the artist, who was hit by several blows of fate throughout her life.
Marguerite Donlon draws her ideas for this ballet evening not only from the multi-shaped artistic work of Frida Kahlo, but also from her journal entries, which in their imagery virtually call for a translation into dancing pictures. Mexican live-music and the works of the architectural design artist Ingo Bracke will complete the evening.

"Why do I need feet, if I have wings to fly?"
Frida Kahlo
