MDLSX weaves autobiography and literary evocations in a wild and fervent paean to the freedom of becoming, to gender-blending, to a being that cannot be contained within the borders of the body, skin colour, sexual organs, or boundaries of national identity.
An 80-minute performance / monologue / DJ set performed by award-winning actor Silvia Calderoni and directed by Motus founders, Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò.
“Silvia Calderoni must be made of mercury, or some improbably liquid element that has yet to be discovered. Surely no body of mortal flesh could undergo the quicksilver transformations achieved by this remarkable performer.”
