Playwright Yulissa Campos on the inspiration for her one-woman show I, Frida
When Yulissa Campos graduated theatre school in Saskatchewan, she looked around and found one glaring problem: the theatre community was lacking cultural diversity. At that time, she wondered if she should shed parts of her identity — like her culture or her accent — to better fit in. It didn’t take long for Campos to realise that she wanted to create a platform for her and others like her who are dealing with a similar struggle. She opened the first Latinx-owned theatre in Saskatoon, called Ay, Caramba! Theatre, and now, her one-woman play I, Frida is a part of this year's Singapore Fringe Festival. Campos joined Tom Power to talk about her play, how it was inspired by her life and the lives of other immigrants around her, and what it means to have her story gain international attention.
