Jesusa Rodríguez is a prominent theatre director, actress, playwright and activist from Mexico who has performed throughout Latin America, Canada, the United States and Europe. She has earned numerous awards, including a Guggenheim Fellowship and an OBIE Award. Rodríguez will perform Primero Sueño, based on the beautiful and intricate seventeenth-century poem that marked the beginning of the modern literary quest for knowledge and enlightenment. The poem was written by Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz, a Mexican nun who became one of the most important writers of the Spanish Golden Age. One of the first women in history to pen a defense of women’s rational capacities and their right to education, Sor Juana made the search for knowledge and truth her reason for being.
