The State House
New Haven CT
Shackled by restraints of reality, Frida finds herself unable to paint. In a moment of desperation, she re-discovers her life source- the other Frida. "Calle Allende" is inspired by an entry in Frida Kahlo’s Diary “The Two Fridas”. "Calle Allende", a puppet theatre production, brings to life Frida’s struggle to reconcile her broken self and dying inspiration. Frida’s pain has clouded her, but in a moment of clarity soon realizes that without her imagination, she will lose her lifeline.
