Natalie Liconti is a Toronto-based performance artist, producer and playwright. She has a multidisciplinary interest in work that explores camp, queerness, and dystopia/utopia. Natalie’s work has presented across Canada and internationally at festivals such as Printemps Numérique Festival, The Rhubarb Festival, Wildside Festival, ZH Festival, and Calm Down, Dear Festival (Camden People’s Theatre: London, UK).
This past year she was nominated for numerous Montreal English Theatre Awards in categories such as Outstanding Emerging Artist, Outstanding Original Text, and Outstanding Independent Production, and her work was shortlisted for the Playwrights’ Guild of Canada’s Robert Beardsley Award.
Her work in film and television can be seen on major networks such as CBC, Global, Revry and Freeform.
Natalie also co-wrote/co-created/co-produced a short digital series, “The Walk-In Closet,” which is now distributed worldwide on Revry, Pluto TV, and XUMO. The series features an entirely queer-identifying cast working against the trope in entertainment of cis-gendered/heterosexual performers playing queer roles.
