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



With Silvia Calderoni
Directed by Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande
