Balbir Singh Dance Company (BSDC) and Billingham International Folklore Festival of World Dance (BIFF) have joined forces to create a beautiful performance to celebrate the life and work of two of the most significant artists of the 20th century: Frida Kahlo and Amrita Sher-Gil, known as the Indian Frida Kahlo.

The Two Fridas is named after Frida Kahlo’s signature painting of the same name. The show combines Kathak classical Indian dance, western contemporary dance, Mexican dance and live music to celebrate Frida and Amrita. The two painters had much in common. They shared a love of colour and self-portraits, experienced agonies of love and were revolutionary in their day but they never met – they were ‘united yet apart.’

Bringing their talents to the first livestream performance of the work will be four BSDC company dancers accompanied by live music. The 50-minute show is directed by Balbir Singh, produced by Olga Maloney (BIFF) with an original score by Joe Harris. 


Alongside the performance you have the option of pre-ordering a take away to collect on the afternoon of the day of the show. 

Realitea Indian Tea Room are offering a 3 course take-away traditional Northern Indian meal for £14.50 per head with collection from Ripon, HG4 1DP. Collection times TBC.
