National Museum of Mexican Art
& Water People Theater Presents
The Worst of All

“I, the Worst of All”, in such words defined Sor Juana Ines De La Cruz herself when signing with her own blood the formal abjuration of her life and work –while the Old and New World praised her as “The Tenth Muse”, “The Phoenix of Mexico”. De La Cruz 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.
