Julia de Burgos is one of Puerto Rico's most illustrious poets whose work has earned a place among the best Latin American and Caribbean literature of the 20th Century. In JULIA DE BURGOS: CHILD OF WATER, Carmen Rivera takes us on a journey through de Burgos' life capturing her passions and inner turmoil to come to terms with herself and her times. De Burgos died tragically in 1953 in New York City where she was discovered lying on an East Harlem street unconscious and without identification. She was burried in an unmarked grave until family and friends had her exhumed and returned to her beloved Puerto Rico where she received a hero's welcome. JULIA DE BURGOS: CHILD OF WATER is a surrealistic play. It explores the division expressed by de Burgo and the discord within herself; she frequently complained about the chaos that her SOUL caused her. Her SOUL is the artist and the fighter who confronts society’s prejudices. In CHILD OF WATER, the SOUL is treated as a separate character. The play breaks time and space and takes place in the chasm between life and death. Carmen Rivera ia an OBIE Award winning playwright whose works have been performed in the U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America and abroad.
