Special guest artist Barbara Schuessler, La Flamencista, has collaborated with Nanette on a dance inspired by flamenco and gypsy dance.

There will be a reception following the opening night performance, allowing for the audience to meet the dancers and artists over drinks and appetizers.

  

Frida Kahlo de Rivera (July 6, 1907 – July 13, 1954) Kahlo's life began and ended in Mexico City, in her home known as the Blue House. At the age of six, Frida developed polio.  At the age of 18 she suffered a traumatic trolley car accident that changed the course of her life forever. Her work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition, and by feminists for its uncompromising depiction of the female experience and form.  Her work has also been described by Andr√© Breton, principal initiator of the surrealist movement, as "a ribbon around a bomb".
