Alicia Agustín

Alicia Agustín, born in Ibiza / Spain, is a performer and author. She studied acting in Berlin and with Fae Simpson at the Michael Howard Studio in New York. As a performer she has been featured, among others, in Tracey Rose’s installation The world is not fair, which was part of the Weltausstellung 2012, a production from HAU and Raumlabor Berlin. Her collaborations have included work with the Russian collective CHTO DELAT? in the framework of Former West at the HKW Berlin, and the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel, Hamburg. Agustín co-created the Talking Straight Company, which was founded with the Talking Straight Festival at the Maxim Gorki Theatre’s Studio Я at the beginning of 2014. Several pieces, including the nationalist-religious conference Aussöhnen mit Deutschland II (Reconciling with Germany II), were created through a collective process. The Talking Straight Festival was invited to the Theatertreffen festival’s Stückemarkt in 2015 and performed in the entire house of the Berliner Festspiele for eight hours. In addition to her work in the Talking Straight company, she curated the performance programme for an exhibition entitled Father Figures Are Hard To Find at the nGbK in Berlin in 2016.
