“Tres Vidas”

WCSU celebrated the lives and achievements of three notable Latin American women of the 20th century — Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni — in a performance by the Core Ensemble of “Tres Vidas” at Ives Concert Hall in October 2009. Renowned for its performances worldwide since its founding in 1993, the Core Ensemble portrayed the lives of Kahlo, Amaya and Storni through the acting of Georgina Corbo and musical accompaniment of cellist Tahirah Whittington, pianist Hugh Hinton and percussionist Michael Parola. The performance set their stories against the background of traditional Mexican folk songs and Argentinean popular and tango music.
