Yo Soy la Desintegracion (I am Disintegration)
Composer: Jean Piché
Librettist: Yan Muckle
Other Artistic Personnel: Pauline Vaillancourt (original concept, director, singer)
Anita Pantin (stage, set, costume, and video designer)
Original Cast: Pauline Vaillancourt (Frida Kahlo)
Premiere Date: September 09, 1997
Producing Company: Chants Libres, Compagnie lyrique de création
Description: The work transposes the story of Frida Kahlo rather than telling it directly. It incarnates the story of a woman fighting pain after an accident that turns her life upside down, encountering love and betrayal, spending time in solitude, while constantly staring death in the face. This is the intimate and vital drama of a woman who gives her all to love, creative work, and living life to its fullest before she is carried away. The spectacle stirs many contradictory emotions: soft but harsh, cruel but tender, austere but colorful, angry but muted. The details of Frida Kahlo's life have been transformed, recycled, and reassembled to put flesh on the bones of the woman personified in this production.
