Expressive, surrealist dance to mirror Kahlo’s art

In this full-length ballet, dancer and choreographer Ochoa expands on an earlier choreography. Broken Wings, created for the English National Ballet, was also inspired by Kahlo. In both works, Ochoa aims for an expressive surrealism in dance that mirrors Kahlo’s art. Using Mexican instruments, British composer Peter Salem has created a longer arrangement of the music he wrote for Broken Wings; the colourful sets and costumes come from internationally acclaimed designer Dieuweke van Reij.
