Tres Vidas - Three Women's Lives And Music
Tres Vidas is a new chamber music Theater work, performed by the Core Ensemble: Tahirah Whittington, cello, Hugh Hinton, piano and Michael Parola, percussion and featured actress Georgina Corbo. Tres Vidas celebrates the life, times and work of three significant Latina Women: painter Frida Kahlo of Mexico, peasant activist Rufina Amaya of El Salvador and poet Alfonsina Storni of Argentina. With storylines including Frida Kahlo's dramatic and passionate relationship with painter Diego Rivera, Rufina Amaya's astounding singular survival of the massacre at El Mozote and Alfonsina Storni's life long challenges as Argentina's first great feminist poet, Tres Vidas presents dramatic situations timeless in their emotional appeal and connection to audiences across all gender and ethnic spectrums.
Music in the show ranges from popular and folk songs from the Mexican, Salvadoran and Argentinean cultures, to transcriptions of works by Astor Piazzolla, to new music written especially for the Core Ensemble by composers Osvaldo Golijov, Orlando Garcia, Pablo Ortiz and Michael DeMurga.
