Born in 1966, Angélica Liddell is a well-known name at many important European festivals. Her play “La casa de la fuerza” received the Premio Nacional de Literatura Dramática, Spain’s most prestigious playwriting award, in 2012. She won the Leone d’argento per il Teatro (Silver Lion for Theatre) at the Venice Biennale in 2013. In 1993, she founded Atra Bilis Teatro in Madrid, where she has staged 22 productions. As an avant-garde, radical and uncompromising artist, she was initially relegated to the fringe art scene, but after she presented her work outside Spain she soon won recognition. Today, Liddell’s productions are presented all over Europe and beyond. Her work has been translated into many languages. In addition to theatre work, Liddell also writes poetry and prose.
