Tired of the ol‘ story of Adam and Eve? The array of imagination and cultural ties from Lewis deSoto and Erin Neff illuminate the Culver Center of Arts with a creation story from the Cahuilla people, who live in Palm Springs, San Gorgonio Pass, Hemet and Anza Borrego. Using sound and light technology, the ancient tale of “Tahquitz,” the primordial creature of the Cahuilla, comes to life. DeSoto will share two stories told to him by a Cahuilla cage bird singer in a collaboration with the mezzo-soprano Erin Neff. Tahquitz, the granite rock formation located in Riverside County, is named after the astounding creature of the Cahuilla. Catch the culturally thought-provoking experience before it’s too late.
