Reading of Rose Cano’s new play exploring the intertwining relationships between freedom and art, workers rights and women’s rights, slavery and class, all through the eyes of the Tristan-Guagain family over three generations.
Inspired by the lives of Flora Tristan, Peru’s first feminist and pioneer in labor relations, and her grandson, infamous post-impressionist artist Paul Gauguin. The two were never alive at the same time. Spanning three generations of the the Tristan-Gaugain family, scenes take place between Peru, France and Tahiti, flipping back and forth in time.
