Display of Culture at FSU

“Tres Vidas” is the first of its kind on campus

“Tres Vidas”, or “Three Lives”, will be performed here on campus by Core Ensemble.

“Tres Vidas” will be in Williams Auditorium on Wed., Sept. 30 from 7p.m. to 9p.m. The performance is free and all students and community members are welcome to attend.

The Diversity Office, through the “Diversity Mini-Grant Program”, has brought “Tres Vidas” to campus. It is being co-sponsored by the Office of Multicultural Student Services, Hispanic Heritage Month Planning Committee, and Student Leadership.

“Tres Vidas” is a music theater production based on the lives of three legendary Latin American women including a painter, peasant activist, and poet. The story offers dramatic situations and compelling emotions to all audiences, according to core-ensemble.cc. It was written by award-winning writer Margorie Agostin and is being directed by Matthew Wright.

Because this is a live performance, the audience will view traditional clothes, music, and dancing. The music ranges from Mexican folk and Argentinian tango to instrumental work.

This is the first time an event like this has been brought to campus. According to Natalia Carvalho-Pinto, Recruiting Officer, the Hispanic Heritage Month Planning Committee believes it is a great accomplishment to bring an event with this caliber to campus. They are proud to bring something to campus that offers music, theater, and educational content all at the same time.

Lori Spitler, FSU student majoring in Architectural Technology, thinks the show will give students a greater understanding about a different kind of culture and lifestyle.

“We believe that this event provides a significant and fun learning experience that our students and community don’t normally experience in a classroom setting,” said Carvalho-Pinto.

The actors and musicians will be available for pictures and interviews after the performance.
