Un Cadáver Exquisito

'An Exquisite Corpse'



Based on the biography of the mexican female artist Frida Kahlo, this play's goal is to use as an expressive vehicle the life of a world-renowned woman, to talk about other (many) women whose lives have been forgotten. Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) was related to physical illnesses, loving dependence, the disability to be a mother, political ideology, passion for art, emotional imbalance, madness, death. All these issues that occurred in the artist's life served as material for the creation of the play and generated stimuli to communicate and reflect that these kind of situations could appear in the lives of many women. An Exquisite Corpse, opens the possibility of talking about these "other" female lives, without distinguishing the country, the context, religion, etc; giving importance to the unknown Latin American women and not only to the life of the artist.
