>> Wings To Fly >> Frida Kahlo Bolero

Duration: 17 min
commissioned by DAGESH, a program by Leo Baeck Foundation

Oxana Chi’s mesmerizing dance ritual is dedicated to the powerful Mexican-German artist Frida Kahlo. She was often forced to stay at home for health-related reasons, a situation which she transformed into her unique visual legacy. Oxana's dance and the music cite elements from the notorious Boléro, originally composed by Maurice Ravel in 1928 as a commissioned work for the dancer and art patron Ida Rubinstein.
