Kahlo may be the most ubiquitous Mexican painter in the 20th Century. And, now, Odalys Nanin and her Macha Theatre bring Frida to life in Frida – Stroke of Passion, a guest production at Casa 0101. Nanin as Frida situates Kahlo in her last days, reminiscing about her many loves while attended by Nurse Judith (Tricia Cruz). One after another, a singer (Sandra Valls), a Cuban spy (Kesia Elwin), Josephine Baker (Celeste Creel), actress Maria Felix (Jorie Burgos), a photographer (Tina Modotti) and even Leon Trotsky (Paul Cascante), reappear in Frida’s memory. But the centerpiece of her love is always Diego (an overpowering Oscar Basulto). The exact conditions of her passing serve as the focal point for Nanin’s rendition of Kahlo’s last days. It is a narrative that maintains its riveting momentum until the very last moment.
