Angélica [a tragedy]

View on the Pragda STREAM site

Recipient of important awards in Spain and abroad, Angélica Liddell's dramaturgy is considered one of the most avant-garde in contemporary European theater. As Liddell starts working in her new play, director Manuel Fernández-Valdés decides to capture her rehearsal process on camera.

The hallmarks of Liddell's autobiographical work are social criticism, heartrending expressionism, purity and the search for meaning through pain and subversion. These characteristics affect the essence of her working method and the people who work with her. Each one of them, including Fernández-Valdés, must decide how far they are willing to go.

Angélica [a tragedy] is an insightful look to the theater stage process, the devotion to art, and the troubled relationship between creation and life.
