This work explores the intentions of Malinche, the Aztec partner of Spanish conquistador Hernan Cortes. This script is delicately self aware, with two modern day narrators navigating possible reasons, actions and justifications for Malinche’s role in this bloody epoch of history. Malinche and Cortes move though these possible worlds as if seen through a window into the past. 


In the final version of this scene the audience placed their chairs in the performance space throughout the scene to symbolise the death of Aztec women under the reign of Cortes.
