Performers include Line Hadad, French and Israeli Ice Dance Olympic competitor and Ice Theatre of New York Ensemble Member, Alizah  Allen, Senior  Ladies US National competitor and Ice Theatre of New York Ensemble  Member, Patrick Connelly, US Ice Dance National competitor, and Beth Woronoff, Director of the Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble and former Ice Theatre of New York Former  Ensemble  Member.  The cast of twelve is filled out by eight members of the Saugerties, NY based Boundless Edge Ice Dance Ensemble.


Fifteen foot tall skeleton puppets join the Day of the Dad Parade, complete with Mariachi music and costumes from Mexico city, all there to honor Mexico’s great artist, Frida Kahlo.  Voice-overs in Spanish and English quote Frida’s original journal entries “I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality.” and “There have been two great accidents in my life. One was the trolley, and the other was Diego. Diego was by far the worst.”  The trolley and bus accident is depicted by five skaters in a bus puppet and two in a trolley puppet crash into one another and spin apart.  Diego and Frida appear in front of Frida’s painting of them only to be interrupted by Frida’s sister, Christina and revolutionary Leon Trotsky.  The seductive scene plays out as Diego casually leaves Frida to dance with her sister.  Despite the physical and emotional pain that Frida endured, the message of her life and this dance is “Live Life! Enjoy Life!  Be yourself!  Let nothing stop you!
