Frida

1997
(22 minutes) 8 to large group piece

This dance requires slide projections.

"Impressions of the paintings of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo projects insights that have the impact of classic tragedy. Sokolow draws her audience into the hidden drama of her character's secret thoughts. Fearlessly, and with infinite compassion, Sokolow reveals the inner life of her protagonists."

"Sokolow's tribute to the great German writer takes the form of an acted-out replay of Kafka's suppressed inner life. The effect is searing, audiences are stirred to the depths."
