Biography's Source:

Absurdist playwright, filmmaker, novelist and poet. He is one of the founders of the "Panic Movement".

Fernando Arrabal was born on August 11, 1932 in Melilla, a Spanish city on the eastern coast of Morocco (now Spain). His father was arrested during the Spanish Civil War for his political beliefs. Arrabel studied law in Madrid and moved to Paris in the 50s to study drama. Most of his work has been published in French, although it appears that he writes in Spanish and his wife, Luce Moreau, helps translate his writing. His work, which often uses violence and blasphemy to shock the audience, is controversial, and he was one of several Spanish-born writers at one point prohibited from entering their own country.
