Synopsis: Video documentation of the piece Striptease de Sor Juana (Sor Juana Striptease), performed by Jesusa Rodríguez as a part of the 6th Encuentro of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics, celebrated in June of 2007 in Buenos Aires, Argentina under the title CORPOLÍTICAS en las Ámericas / Body Politics in the Americas: Formations of Race, Class and Gender. Rodríguez performs a fragment of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruzs 17th century poem, Primero Sueño, which the poet confesses was the only poem she ever wrote for pleasure and for herself. As she strips away the levels of the poem, she also strips away her clothes. Jesusa Rodríguez (www.elhabito.com.mx) is Mexicos leading cabaret and political performance artist, who ran the famous El Hábito in Mexico City with her wife Liliana Felipe. She is the recipient of an Obie Award and the first artist named Senior Fellow of the Hemispheric Institute.
