"Vidas Perfectas: El Parque"

We would like to contribute to the dialogue about The Sound of the City performatively, with a live, lunchtime, low-tech concert performance of “El Parque,” a half-hour episode from Vidas Perfectas, the Spanish-language version of Robert Ashley’s landmark work Perfect Lives (1977-1983). This all-new version features Ned Sublette, Elio Villafranca, Peter Gordon, Elisa Santiago, and Abraham Gómez Delgado, in the roles originally performed by Robert Ashley, “Blue” Gene Tyranny, Peter Gordon, Jill Kroesen and David van Tieghem, respectively.
