Frida Kahlo

by Giovanni Ravelo

About Carmen:
This one-act ballet, choreographed by company founder Mark Roxey, is
a contemporary ballet, stylized in abstract decor. “Carmen” is a sensually vivid and passionate story of lust and treachery based on the fabled temptress of Seville.
The story follows the downward spiral of “Carmen” after Prosper Merimee’s novel and Georges Bizet’s opera. The ballet has captured

and scandalized audiences throughout the world since French Dance Master Roland Petit first presented the 45-minute tale of seduction and betrayal at Prince’s Theatre in London in 1949. The central love duet for Carmen and Don Jose is said to be among the most sensual couplings ever put on the ballet stage.

About Frida Kahlo:

This piece choreographed by Giovanni Ravelo tells the story of

 Frida Kahlo , a Mexican painter known for her many portraits, and works inspired

by the nature and artifacts of Mexico. Inspired by the country's popular culture, she employed a naïve folk art style to explore questions of identity, post colonialism, gender, class, and race in Mexican society. Her paintings often had strong autobiographical elements and mixed realism with fantasy.

Kahlo is known for painting about her experience of chronic pain.

This work explores the life of one of the most profound artists of our time.
