“If I Cry” Brings Frida Kahlo’s Diaries to Life

Tampa City Ballet’s Highly Acclaimed Performance is back to close the 6th Season

Audiences will once again be able to witness “If I Cry,” Tampa City Ballet’s captivating performance reflecting on the life of the colorful, dynamic and legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Paula Nunez, Tampa City Ballet’s Artistic Director, explained that the inspiration for this performance came from Frida’s diaries.

“Her diaries revealed a life of loss and adversity interwoven with her determined will to create works of art while saturating her surroundings with an air of spontaneity and joy" said Nunez. “Tampa City Ballet hopes to transport the audience through a surrealistic dance journey to the poignant and passionate emotional landscape of Frida’s remarkable life.”

This collaborative event brings together artists, Paula Nuñez as Artistic Director, Fashion Designer Amalia Bracho from BRACHO+BOSCH, Composer and Violinist Nick Ewing, Coral Wattaka Tampa, Artist in Residence Jayron Perez Cabrera (Malpaso, Acosta Company, Cinevox – Switzerland) and Lighting Designer Alex Amyot. They each contribute their unique talents to portray Frida Kahlo’s life journey.
