Una costilla sobre la mesa: Madre
‘Extremely expressive, incredibly sensitive and radically honest.’ – De Volkskrant
Angélica Liddell’s theatre is political, but also deeply personal. Her motto is to try to transform pain into beauty. Madre is a theatrical, baroque and fiery requiem, in which Liddell gives expression to the love-hate relationship she had with her mother. Together with her performers and a flamenco singer, Liddell creates a ritual of her own, a moving attempt to find the roots of grief.
Starting time: 8 p.m.
Duration: 90 minutes, excl. intermission

Angélica Liddell started out in the nineties in the Spanish underground scene. Today, her works can be enjoyed on major international stages and at prestigious festivals, such as Festival d'Avignon, Wiener Festwochen and La Biennale di Venezia, the latter at which she was awarded the Silver Lion. We have previously had the honour of working together with her for performances of her shows Primera carta de San Pablo a los Corintios. Cantata BWV 4, Christ lag in Todesbanden. Oh, Charles and Maldito sea el hombre que confía en el hombre: un projet d'alphabétisation.
Angélica Liddell, outspoken in everything she does, and especially in her theater performances. Extremely expressive, super sensitive and radically honest.' - de Volkskrant
Angélica Liddell climbed from the Spanish underground scene to the international big stages and prestigious festivals such as Festival d'Avignon, Wiener Festwochen and the Venice Biennale, where she was also awarded the Silver Lion. On stage, Liddell rails against the abuses she sees around her, against hypocrisy, against abuses of power.
On stage I say the truth out loud. Here the walls of propriety are blown up. Propriety is an obstacle in my work. What I make is a kind of pornography, pornography for the soul.' - Angélica Liddel
