Castellucci, Liddell get top Venice Theatre Festival awards


Venice, August 2 - Italian experimental stage
director Romeo Castellucci and Spanish actress and performer
Angélica Liddell were awarded top prizes at the latest edition
of the 42nd International Theatre Festival in Venice on Friday.
Castellucci received the Golden Lion for lifetime
achievement, while Liddell was awarded the Silver Lion for
Theatrical Innovation.
The awards ceremony took place in the ''Sala delle Colonne''
room at Ca'Giustinian, in the heart of historic Venice, where
the festival organizer Biennale di Venezia is headquartered.
''The Golden Lion for the lifetime achievement given to
Romeo Castellucci originates from a sentiment of gratitude and
togetherness towards an artist who is celebrated abroad but
considered an uncomfortable talent here in Italy'', said Paolo
Baratta, president of the Biennale di Venezia.
''It's a Lion given in the name of Italy''.
Castellucci said he was struck by having been awarded the
prize, adding that ''it makes one stop and look back''.
