Sydney Festival
Looking for something fun to do around the city after work or on a Saturday evening?

Wander down to the Cutaway to Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon, where Frida Kahlo Up Late is serving up spicy margaritas and tacos along with immersive art, live music and dancing until 9.30pm (last entry 8pm) Tuesday to Saturday and 6pm Sunday (last entry 5.30pm).

There’ll be dancers performing live inside the exhibition each Friday and Saturday night between 5.30 and 9.30pm, doing traditional Mexican wedding dances and other dances inspired by Frida’s life and culture.

There’ll also be a live musician roaming the exhibition, performing in the Cantina and inside the exhibit for the dancers as they twirl and strut their intricate steps. And because Frida loved her tequila almost as much as she loved Diego, we’ll have a well-stocked bar with a Jalapeno chilli Margarita, a classic Margarita and a classic Negroni, plus a selection of spirits and mixers, Hawkes Brewing beers and Bunnamagoo wines.

On the menu in the Cantina, there’ll be soft shell tacos with chipotle pulled pork or habanero infused shitake mushroom, plus pineapple pico de gallo, slaw and fresh lime; fresh baked empanadas with smoked adobo dipping sauce; corn chips with guacamole and pineapple pico de gallo; and warm churros served with chocolate dipping sauce.

Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon is a biographical journey through the life of one of the most influential artists of all time, comprising nine rooms of original films, captivating holography, 360º projections and virtual reality that literally transports you inside Kahlo’s most famous works.

After you’ve explored the exhibition and had your fill to eat and drink, check out La Tienda, a gift shop stocked with exceptional Frida Kahlo and Kahlo-inspired merch.

If you and your friends/family/date don’t leave with a little case of “Fridamania”, we haven’t done our job properly. Get your tickets now for the Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon Friday and Saturday night sessions before they sell out.
