Based on her personal relationship with Mexican painters Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, Ms. Sokolow shaped an intimate portrait using dance, slides of Kahlo‘s paintings, and a score by Mexican composers.

“Fearlessly, and with infinite compassion, Sokolow reveals the inner life of her protagonists.”
