Along with spoken segments of Tres Vidas, the audience will experience the musical accompaniment created for the work and performed by a trio with a cellist, pianist, and percussionist. Together, the actress and musicians are known as Core Ensemble. The group travels extensively to present Tres Vidas, often on college campuses.
