This monologue on the painter’s life was written by Humberto Robles.
Frida Kahlo (Coyoacán, Mexico City, 1907 - 1954) has been the subject of numerous books, films and songs, and her life has also been portrayed on the stage. The latest example can be seen at Sala Fènix, where, until 30 July, the actress Marisol Salcedo will be presenting a number of episodes from her life in monologue format. The playwright Humberto Robles originally conceived of Frida Kahlo. Viva la vida as an imaginary meeting of four of the most important women in Mexican history, but when he began to research the life of Frida he found himself writing a monologue exclusively featuring her.
Directed by Carles Solsona, the work delves into her relationship with Diego Rivera, Rockefeller and Trotsky, the bus accident that did her permanent physical damage and, of course, her art. The text includes phrases written by Frida, as well as poems from her personal diary and references to her artworks.
