Genesis 6, 6-7
Angélica Liddell, the enfant terrible of Spanish theatre, a genre-defying artist, returns to the Athens Festival five years after her performance All the Sky Above the Earth (The Wendy Syndrome). In Genesis 6, 6-7, third part of the Trilogy of the Infinite, Liddell blends poetry and theatre, weaving together the myth of Medea with the Old Testament. The title refers to the first book of the Old Testament and more specifically in that moment when God regrets creating humankind and decides to destroy all life on the planet “And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man, and beast, and the creeping thing, and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.” Liddell’s signature style, the painful connection between stage representation and personal experience, creates an exhausted world which can no longer be patient, craving its own extinction; a world seeking (self)destruction in an attempt to reach holiness; a world declaring war on itself, with beauty, the grotesque and the demoniac as its weapons; a world which will leave us all speechless.
