Myriam Lucas: Callous
Join us as for a full evening-length production as Myriam Lucas presents Callous, a Mounarath-Powell Production, at the Visionary Performance Space (7202 El Cajon Boulevard, San Diego, CA 92115) on August 8th-9th @ 8pm. Callous [Kahlo-us]: Is a development of Myriam Lucas’ work titled Two Fridas: Diego, if you…could…just…love…me , originally performed at Jean Isaac’s Young Choreographer’s Prize Showcase and awarded with Audience Favorite. Callous focuses on Frida’s artistic vulnerability by bringing to the forefront the way in which Frida’s work is relatable. Frida Kahlo’s art work is significant till this day because it is raw, honest and evokes deeply human responses. Callous is not so much a Frida Kahlo biography, as it is more so a translation from one medium of art to another…the canvas to the body.
Viva La Frida!
