Fantasy Gig-poster for the Chicago Reader

Sor Juana Ines de la Cruz, the famed poet intellectual genius of seventeenth century New Spain, LIVE! Her brilliance was so powerful, that she was banished from the public and cloistered away by the Catholic Church. Now for one night only on the eve of Día de los Muertos she's back to RE-RE-Occupy the famed Casa Aztlán auditorium in Pilsen. Having been initially occupied by Brown Berets during the Chicano movement, Casa Aztlán became the center for arts, culture and social struggle in this Mexicano community for over four decades. Now having been sold off and white washed by gentrifying realtors, Casa Aztlán is being Re-Re-Occupied for this special performance.
