During her production residency at LABorals, sound LAB, the Spanish writer, stage director and actress Angélica Liddell will work on her last project, co-produced by Centro de Arte y Creación Industrial de Gijón and La Bâtie-Festival in Geneva.

Angélica Liddell will shape during her stay at LABoral her last research, inspired by Emily Dickinson, a nineteenth century American poet that spent a good part of her live confined in a room in her father’s place in Amherst and whose huge work was not published until 1955, many years after her death. In fact, only five of her poems were published, three of them without her signature and another one without her knowing.

Starting from one of the most often repeated words in Dickinson’s verses, bee, the Spanish playwright approaches this work with the purpose of “giving a voice to the chaos that built a poetic: The buzz of bees, the chants of Massachussets native Americans, the noise and the fury of Shakespeare and some poems that Dickinson would read backwards, her own poems”.

At LABoral, Angélica Liddell will prepare the production of the piece Esta breve tragedia de la carne that will premiere at La Bâtie-Festival in Geneva, a competition that each year shows during 16 days the latest trends in contemporary stage arts in several venues of Geneva and other neighbouring towns, such as Nyon and Lausanne. The 39th La Bâtie festival will take place from August 28 to September 12, 2015.  The result of the sound research is called Emily and will be subsequently shown at the Sound LAB of the Art Centre.
