About the Play

This bilingual play paints a portrait of the rich and turbulent life of Frida Kahlo through three versions of Frida. The Frida’s will try to separate themselves from the gift shop imagery and show their true selves. From the streetcar accident that crippled their body to their torrid relationship with Diego Rivera, life and art intertwine in this story of one of Mexico’s most acclaimed artists.


Dañel Malan-Gonzalez co-founded the Milagro Theatre with her husband, Jose Eduardo Gonzalez and in 1989 she created the bilingual touring program, Teatro Milagro, which toured nationally to schools, colleges and universities. Ms. Malán researches and develops script ideas and works with playwrights, directors, composers and choreographers for the creation of many of the productions. She has also written several bilingual scripts for Teatro Milagro, which include Cuéntame Coyote (2005, 2014) and FRIDA, un retablo (2006, 2013). For several years she also managed and performed with the Milagro Bailadores, Miracle’s pan-Latino dance troupe. For Milagro she has collaboratively designed and implemented curriculum for K-12 schools and colleges and has presented at various workshops, conferences and college campuses around the country. Malán also co-founded OYE, Opciónes Y Educación, a Latino sexual health coalition with Multnomah County Health Department. Malán received her BA in Theatre Arts from the University of California, San Diego and her MS in Curriculum Instruction from Portland State University. Currently she serves as a Commissioner representing Multnomah County on the Metropolitan Exposition and Recreation Commission.
