Faith hope love come together for their seasonal rendezvous (love bring the biggest of the three), and Angelica Liddell still has a few things to ask God. Is it true that we do not all die? That only those die, who have loved? And that only the dead are reborn and become immortal? Is hate a form of love? Does love come from me or to me? Can two people, who aren’t loved, not love each other either? Is love therefore a duty, a commandment, a task, whose fulfilment requires great effort? Over the last few years, one-of-a-kind Spanish author and performer Angélica Liddell has scaled the top of the European theatre Olympus with her intense solos and group pieces. The Festwochen in Vienna, the Berliner Festspiele or the Festival d’Avignon have all repeatedly produced her work; most recently, the first two parts of her “resurrection trilogy” were sold-out for one month each in the gigantic Théâtre de l’Odéon in Paris. The Mousonturm is now co-producing her newest piece, the conclusion of the trilogy and presenting its German premiere. Liddel’s view of the world is radically personal, but her ruthless emotionality makes her work universal. Her rage is sacredly contemporary; her negativity is dialectic. Her position is extreme, her aesthetic disturbingly fragile, kitschy, painful. Yet her rituals of rage are only seemingly self-destructive: they also force us to gaze into our own distorting mirror of piecemeal self-awareness.

In Spanish with German Surtitles.
