Running Time: 90 mins

“I, the worst of all”, Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz defined herself in such words when signing the formal abjuration of her life and work with her own blood. While the Old and New World praised her as “The Tenth Muse”, “The Phoenix of Mexico”, she lived in a dying century that refused to perish and as such, enhanced its bigotry against her talent and thirst for knowledge. In the attempt to conciliate her will and her freedom, she dared to share her mind and was punished as consequence. She died from being silent, while her voice on behalf of women transcended oceans and ages. 

Doors will open at 6pm, performances will begin at 7pm.
