Meet the artist: with performers 9 June - after the performance

The controversial Spanish writer, director and performance artist wants her audience to share humanity’s vices and the unexpected beauty she finds in them. In The Scarlet Letter she focuses on contemporary sexual mores. The performance is based on Nathaniel Hawthorne’s eponymous novel – a work about sin, punishment and reconciliation. In this provocative cry of anguish Liddell reminds us that humanity finds its foundation in the guilt of the first man. It is Liddell’s offering to the ultimate freedom of the artist.
