She wears bells follows the story of the Aztec god Coyolxãuhqui, who lost in a battle with her brother Huitzilopochtli and was dismembered and exiled to the moon. The operetta follows her attempts to reclaim her godliness and create a new legacy.

The the performance features original music, text and choreography from local talents including reyes-boitel, choreographer Giomara Bazaldua and more.
