BOYLE HEIGHTS — Chicanas, Cholas, y Chisme presents  Chicanas, Cholas y Chisme’s Su Frida Calo, a theater festival that explores Latina’s perspectives on Frida Kahlo from Friday, March 17 through Sunday, April 16.

Currently in their fifth year of original new works Chicanas, Cholas, y Chisme began from the desire to foster more Latina-driven creative work. Since its modest beginning in 2013, Chicanas, Cholas, y Chisme has more than quadrupled in size, presented 57 new plays and broken attendance records at Casa 0101 nearly selling out each show.

Chicanas, Cholas y Chisme empowers Latinas by giving them the tools to develop new creative works, with each of the playwrights also taking on the role of directors and associate producers for the production, making it an entirely Latina driven production.

When: Friday, March 17 through Sunday, April 16

Where: Casa 0101 Theater, 2102 East 1st Street, Los Angeles

Cost: Tickets are $20 general admission, $17 students/seniors, $15 Boyle Heights residents/Groups 10+

Info: Casa 101 Theater

  1. Frida Kahlo was a middle class white girl who appropriated indigenous culture to be edgy and become famous. She undermined the true meaning of feminism and communism and is praised for it. She is a sell out and I feel bad that Latinas today look to her for inspiration. Yes she was a powerful woman but she was phenotypically white and had all the privileges of being white … and she used this privilege to exploit indigenous culture.
