Dakshina / Daniel Phoenix Singh Dance Company returns to Dance Place with an evening of Anna Sokolow’s choreography, including Frida and Homenaje a David Alfaro Siqueiros.
In tribute to her friendship with Frida Kahlo, Sokolow choreographed Frida to honor the artists’ vibrant, tumultuous and prolific life as well as her love of Mexico and its culture.
Homenaje a David Alfaro Siqueiros is Sokolow’s sculptural interpretation of Mexican muralist Siqueiros’ artwork, incorporating projections of his paintings as well as spoken text.
“Impressions of the paintings of the Mexican artist Frida Kahlo project 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.” – Ernestine Todelle
“Sokolow transformed the Mexican artist’s humanist expressionist visions into sculpture…With a cast of just 9 (and sometimes fewer), Sokolow is able to launch an irresistible pulse, an effect for which other choreographers require massive forces.”
– George Jackson
