On the eve of the Day of the Dead, two unique and universal figures come together in an impossible dialogue where ghosts, hallucinations, and images of the past are present from death in a poetic representation of life.

With sharp, scathing, lucid language, The Painter and The Nun immerse themselves in a theatrical kaleidoscope to reveal the fears, passions, colors, and verses that have accompanied them on their journey to transcendence.

The piece explores the role of women in a stifling machista society through two icons of Mexican culture: Frida Kahlo and Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz.
