CONCERT OF COLORS: Art as a Weapon: Five Scenes of Frida and Diego in Detroit

Friday, July 10, 2015 |7:00 PM

  • For Everyone
The true story of artists of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera time in Depression-era Detroit told in a multi-media stage performance with an original musical score, ranging from hot jazz, classical, punk, techno and mariachi. An ensemble cast recreate five scenes with dialogue based on actual words said and written during the time of artists stay in Detroit-where both created masterpieces as the city teetered toward anarchy. Composer Rick Robinson and CutTime create the music. Emmy-Winning filmmaker Stephen McGee provides imagery from archives and contemporary Detroit. Author Louis Aguilar wrote and produced the scenes.
