“If I raise my voice, it is because I can no longer endure it. Of what envy am I not the target? Of what evil intention am I not the object? There is no gift that suffers more attacks than Understanding.” 

Cornered by her enemies, Sister Juana rebels in this theatrical production with a flamenco soul, woven together using the author's verses and ideas. 

“Why must ignorance be better than science?” she asks us, while she strives to tear down the walls with which they want to silence her. 

Our Juana Inés came into being as a tribute to the legacy of one of the greatest women writers of the 17th century. And with the hope that her voice will move us away from the society we don't want to continue being, and invite us to embrace what we need to begin to be.
