Tres Vidas: Workshop

This interactive workshop is hosted by the Core Ensemble, with verbal introductions to vignettes from the lives of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni. As audience demographics change and technology touches the ways in which people experience art, chamber ensembles are seeking new ways to engage audiences. Core Ensemble members discuss their vision of chamber works of the future, citing examples from their own repertoire such as Tres Vidas. Discussion will center on the process of creating the new genre of chamber music theatre as well as social and cultural issues explored in each work. A question and answer period with the performers will conclude the program. Please join us for the full performance of Tres Vidas following the workshop, 6:00pm-7:30pm in the AC West Music Hall on March 18th.

Kate Bornstein - Men, Women, and the Rest of Us, brought to you by the LGBTQ Resource Center

“This is my autobiographical signature piece, my most personal stories, my favorite comic and dramatic monologues. An entertaining introduction to the notion of sex and gender beyond the binary - as well as a deeply moving affirmation of spirit for sex-and-gender outlaws. If you don’t mind the f-word every now and then, the show is even child-friendly.  Campuses and conferences alike have chosen this piece for both celebrating and increasing the awareness of trans identities.”
