In celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Lacroute Arts Series, the Department of Theatre and Communication Arts, and the Department of Music present the Core Ensemble in their production of Los Valientes (the courageous ones). “Los Valientes” is a chamber music theatre production for solo actor and trio (cello, piano, percussion), exploring the artistic and political passions of Diego Rivera; the unwavering commitment to human rights of Salvadoran Archbishop Oscar Romero; and the pursuit of social justice by Mexican American desperado Joaquin Murrieta, aka Zorro. Text is by Jose Cruz Gonzalez. Music for this show features songs and concert/vernacular music by a wide range of Latin American composers including Astor Piazzolla and Osvaldo Golijov. Chamber music theatre is a unique performance format developed by the Core Ensemble featuring a marriage of theatrical narrative to chamber music performance.
