An explosive investigation of gender and identity, spilling across boundaries, and refusing to be contained.
MDLSX is a wild and solitary hymn to the freedom of becoming, to gender b(l)ending and to being more than the borders of our body, skin colour, sexual organs or nationality. Fiction and autobiography collide, weaving performer Silvia Calderoni’s life story with literary evocations. An electric monologue and DJ set.
Acclaimed Italian based collective Motus is inspired by everything from Greek mythology, to documentary theatre and historical events.
“An uncompromising, rock music-edged portrait… outstanding”
