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 has presented work across Canada and internationally at curated festivals such as Printemps Numérique Festival, Wildside Festival, ZH Festival, and Calm Down, Dear Festival.
In 2016 she founded the META-nominated performance collective, Daughter Product. Natalie has been nominated for several Montreal English Theatre Awards in categories such as Outstanding Emerging Artist, Outstanding Original Text (The Life and Death of Fred Herko), and Outstanding Independent Production (as Producer).
In 2018 Natalie was a resident at Camden People's Theatre's Starting Blocks Programme - a creation residency for emerging solo artists in London, UK. Natalie is currently one of The Rhubarb Festival's Artistic Interns at Buddies In Bad Times Theatre.
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.
