Angélica Liddell. Encounter with the public

The artist Angélica Liddell will hold an open encounter with the public in her installation ‘Emily’, the result of her production residency at LABoral

22 August 2015

A year after her withdrawal from the Spanish stage “due to the lack of interest of the institutions” and while she continues to triumph in her tours around Europe, Angélica Liddell wants to establish a dialogue with the Asturian public about her work and the elements on which she has conceptually built this work produced during an artistic residency at LABoral.

Director, playwright and performer, Liddell (Figueres, 1966) won the Premio Nacional de Literatura Dramática in 2012 and is a central figure in Spanish theatre that has emerged in the last decade, thanks to a radical stage proposal that has led her to explore the limits of what is visible and audible on stage.

During this encounter, the artist will read poems by Emily Dickinson that have served as the basis for her most recent research and which are embodied in Emily, an installation with which the Spanish playwright wants to “give voice to the chaos that built a poetics: the murmur of the bees, the songs of the Massachusetts Indians, the noise and fury of Shakespeare and some poems that Dickinson read backwards, her own poems”.

Together with Emily, Angélica Liddell has prepared at LABoral the production of Esta breve tragedia de la carne, a work that will premiere at the 39th edition of La Bâtie-Festival in Geneva, an institution that, together with the Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial, is co-producing both pieces.
