Join Red Hen Press and The Broad Stage for an afternoon of unforgettably talented trios.

Francesca Bell, Francisco Aragon and Florencia Ramirez are creating new myths across the sky. Florencia writes of water and sustainability, Francisco is haunted by Rubén Darío, who created new forms, and Francesca is pushing back against what we should not write about. This poetry of reshaping is in conversation with the music of Don Davis played by the Debussy Trio. California is a place for reinvention; and in today's program, we will hear the traditional and the risk-taking moving toward each other.

There will be American Sign Language interpretation at this performance. Please click here to purchase seats close to the interpreter.
