After a sell-out run and a Herald Angel Award at the 2014 Fringe, Bowditch returns with her intimate and witty show that explores the life, loves and legacy of painter Frida Kahlo (1907 – 1954), exposing little-known facts about the infamous woman, remembered for her art. The reclaiming of a disabled artist, a love like obsession, an enquiry into how we shape what we are remembered for.

Affinities and parallels are drawn, and the tale of the great concealer is skilfully revealed by and through powerful yet fragile bodies.
