Performance celebrates lives, times and works of three important Latina women

Spartanburg Methodist College will host a performance of “Tres Vidas” in recognition of Hispanic Heritage Month on Oct. 8 in Gibbs Auditorium from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. The performance is free and open to the public.

Tres Vidas is a chamber music theatrical performance that celebrates the lives, times and works of three women who played important roles in Latin American history: Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, Salvadoran activist Rufina Amaya and Argentinean poet Alfonsina Storni. A singing actress will present the stories of these three women, accompanied by a pianist. The performance features a wide stylistic range of music, including Mexican, Salvadoran and Argentinean folk and popular songs, vocal and instrumental tangos and new music written specifically for Tres Vidas.

Tres Vidas is a work created and performed by members of The Core Ensemble. The Core Ensemble is a performing arts group that produces chamber music pieces that incorporate other performance elements like narrative dance and visual arts. They have produced 14 separate works that have been performed across the United States and abroad, as well as two CDs and many commissioned pieces.

The performance is part of SMC’s Interdisciplinary Studies Series, which features performances, speakers and art experiences that enhance the liberal arts mission of Spartanburg Methodist College. For information about upcoming events on the series, visit
