Collaborator - Columbia College Chicago
Synopsis - Kaite O'Reilly's The 9 Fridas was commissioned by Sherman Cymru Theatre (Wales, UK), and is exclusively licensed to Taipei Arts Festival to conduct the premiere outside the UK. Directed by internationally known director/actor-trainer, Phillip Zarrilli, co-produced by Mobius Strip Theatre and Hong Kong Repertory Theater, The 9 Fridas challenges conventional ways of looking at the world famous female Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo--an everywoman whose life has great resonance for today. The 9 Fridas explores disability, love, creativity, and politics. It is a salute to the artist as well as to the tenacity and passion in life.
