After The Scarlet Letter, performed in 2019 at La Colline, Spanish artist Angelica Liddell chose the form of Direct Address to address the intimate theme of parentage. A tribute to her recently deceased mother.

The author-director feeds from philosophical resources and brings together actors, amateurs, visually impaired performers and children along with an acapella vocalist Nino de Elche and close collaborator : dancer, Ichiro Sugae.
