Sueño : a multimedia play based on the life of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz

by Romero, María de

Abstract (Summary)
The thesis documents and analyzes my collaborative process in the creation and performance of the multimedia theatre play Sueño, a work that explores the life of the 17th Century Mexican nun, Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. In its main chapters, the thesis presents the historical research which informs the writing of the play, and then examines the development of the play’s visual structure and multimedia elements, the design and rehearsal process, and the public performance. The primary question this thesis addresses is “How can the various dimensions of performance, video, lighting and sound design be integrated in order to evoke Sor Juana’s mindspace, a ephemeral world that unfolds, overlaps and blossoms like the nature of thought itself?”
