Angélica Liddell

Angélica Liddell is the author of many plays, as well as a director and actress. Based in Madrid, she founded the company Atra Bilis in 1993. Her shows, such as La casa de la fuerza (2009), You are my destiny (2014), and more recently the diptych Una costilla sobre la mesa : Padre & Madre (2020), explore an aesthetics halfway between performance and theatre. They are the reflection and the repository of the pain she feels in response to the evils and violence of the world. Her latest play for the Festival d’Avignon, ¿ Qué haré yo con esta espada ?, was performed in the Cloître des Carmes in 2016. She was made Chevalier de l’ordre des Arts et des Lettres in 2017.
