Jelena is quite extraordinary - she showed Frida and made you suffer along with her

Actors Contemporary Theatre

Closed 31 May 2013
Frida Kahlo was one of the world's most daring painters. It is impossible to separate the life and work of Frida Kahlo, as her paintings are her biography. As the wife of one of the world's most celebrated muralist, Diego Rivera, Frida became a painter in her own right.

This play explores her struggles with her husband's infidelity, her confrontation with her physical injuries and facing her own mortality. A riveting show entitled after Frida's motto and her painting, Tree of Hope Remain Strong, probes many facets extraordinary character and life.
