Revolutionary intersex performance by international artist Silvia CalderoniPresented by: Midsumma Festival and Arts House

MDLSX is an explosive, psychedelic and solitary hymn to the freedom of becoming, to gender b(l)ending, to being other than the borders of the body. In this mind-blowing theatrical trip, platinum-maned punk god/dess Silvia Calderoni uses her family's home videos to blur fiction with her own life story. MDLSX is a "scandalous" theatrical trip: part performance-art monologue, part DJ set featuring music from The Smiths, Vampire Weekend, R.E.M. and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
"A perception-scrambling work from the Italian revolutionary theatre troupe Motus." – Ben Brantley, The New York Times
"Theatergoers are likely to leave MDLSX exhilarated." – Jonathan Mandell, New York Theater
