Wales-based theatre director Phillip Zarrilli—designated ‘guest director’ for this year’s Taipei Arts Festival—to direct the Mandarin premiere of award-winning contemporary playwright Kaite O'Reilly's the 9 fridas


Kaite O’Reilly’s the 9 fridas was commissioned by Sherman Cymru Theatre (Wales, UK), and is exclusively licensed to Taipei Arts Festival to conduct the premiere outside the UK. Directed by internationally known director/actor-trainer, Phillip Zarrilli, co-produced by Mobius Strip Theatre and Hong Kong Repertory Theater, the 9 fridas challenges conventional ways of looking at the world famous female Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo--an everywoman whose life has great resonance for today. The 9 fridas explores disability, love, creativity, and politics. It is a salute to the artist as well as the tenacity and passion in life.


5-6-7 September, 2014 Wellspring Theater, Taipei [In Mandarin with English surtitles at the opening performance.]
