FHU Celebrates Hispanic Culture with Presentation of "Tres Vidas"

Henderson, Tenn. - Mar 09, 2015

Freed-Hardeman University’s Connections Series, being held March 9 - 13, celebrates America’s Hispanic culture. “Weaving the American Tapestry: The Hispanic Thread” will feature a presentation of “Tres Vidas” by Core Ensemble.

Core Ensemble, a professional theatre company that celebrates “diversity through chamber music theatre,” will present “Tres Vidas” Tuesday, March 10, at 7:00pm in Loyd Auditorium. It is based on the lives of three legendary Latin American Women: Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran peasant activist Rufina Amaya and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni. The chamber music theatre work is written for a singing actress and a trio consisting of cello, piano and percussion.

The public is invited to attend the performance; admission is free.

The Connections Series is held each semester to highlight interdisciplinary linkages impacting a topic of national importance. Other events of the week include a discussion and coffee bar and a block party featuring the food, sounds and sports of Latin America for FHU students.
