After a fantastic response to the World Premiere of The Two Fridas performed at The Bowes Museum in County Durham in September 2020, Balbir Singh Dance Company in collaboration with Billingham International Folklore Festival of World Dance (BIFF) will be touring the production during July and August 2021.

The Two Fridas will be heading to venues across Billingham, County Durham, Darlington, Middlesbrough, Redcar and Cleveland, and Stockton-on-Tees.  It will also feature a new dynamic, drawing on the fractious marital relationship between Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera as well as showcasing a display of live painting delivered by various local painters.
