Growing out of the multi-media theater project of the same name, La Bestia: Sweet Mother, a Troubadour's Tale concentrates on the story of Valencia, a Honduran immigrant who suffers indignities and threats to live her dream: coming to the United States to start a new life.  The musical component, directed by Desiree Miller and composed by both Desiree (Cello) and Becca Weiss (singer) underscores the libretto with virtuosity and a variety of musical styles.  The concert will include a special guest appearance by Liz Higgins, who will dance her own original choreography.  Liz has traveled the world dancing for the Nikolai Dance Company, as well as dancing at the Joyce Theater (NY), Kennedy Center (DC) and numerous other venues around the country and world.
