"Director. Andrés Lima, founder of the company Animalario and winner of the 2019 National Prize for Theatre, is one of the creators responsible for the renewal of contemporary Spanish drama.

Born in Madrid in 1961, Lima channelled his creativity and his drive to research the performing arts into founding the company Riesgo in the early '90s. In 1996 he joined forces with other colleagues (Alberto San Juan, Guillermo Toledo, Nathalie Poza and Ernesto Alterio) to form Animalario (winner of the 2005 National Prize for Theatre), where he presented his first work as a director: “Qué te importa que te ame.” This was followed by other successful and award-winning works, including “Marat-Sade” (2006), “Urtain” (2008), “Titus Andronicus” (2009) and “El montaplatos” (2012). In total, he has developed twenty productions for the National Drama Centre, Teatro de la Abadía and Teatro de la Zarzuela, and has explored other genres, such as Baroque opera and musical theatre. He has also had a notable career as an actor, on the stage, in films and on television.
