Created and performed by Helen Pridmore.

This 50 minute musical work explores the life and writings of a fascinating woman from the 17th century, Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz of Mexico. An advocate for women's rights, a poet, and a philosopher, she challenged ideas of faith and love, all from the lowly standpoint of a cloistered nun.
