The Four FridasA celebration of the life and work of the legendary Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, The Four Fridas is a spectacular, outdoor theatre production and the centerpiece to this year's Greenwich and Docklands International Festival. Performed by a creative team led by the festival's artistic director, Bradley Hemmings (who co-directed the Opening Ceremony to the London 2012 Paralympic Games), the outdoor performance integrates elements of ritual, music, narration, contemporary dance and aerial choreography, played out against stunning video projections in the sky. A group of young indigenous women from the remote village of Xochiapulcho in Sierra Puebla will enact the flight of the Voladores giving London audiences a rare opportunity to see the ceremonial ritual.

 

About Royal Artillery Barracks

The Royal Artillery Barrracks are not open to the public. But you can learn about the history of the Gunners at Firepower, The Royal Artillery Museum, a 15 minute walk from here.The London port of Woolwich has a long military history, and so it was highly apt that the Royal Artillery Barracks should host the Olympic shooting events for London 2012.
