AUTOFICTION. DJ SET. ANDROGYNY.

How do you not choose gender, or even be defined by it, but just be? Life stories, home video, queer culture, performance art, academia, androgyny and music combust into a pulsating and explosive hymn to the freedom of being, where fiction and autobiography collide.

Boundary blurring, genre-defining, visually ravishing.

ARTIST TALKS

Ever wonder what inspiration is behind a piece of theatre or dance? Are you curious about where artists draw their inspiration from for their characters?

Artist Talks provide you the opportunity to pick the brains of writers, performers and have a conversation about the issues that brought a work to life. Artist Talks are free and for this performance will only take place on the Friday performance night, immediately following the show.

the audience remains hypnotized, moved, surprised, not so much because of the undoubtable formal beauty of what we see on stage, but more because of the performer’s extreme and radical courage. And also because of her talent, that brings together an almost animal spontaneity (since always one of her greatest gifts) and a quasi maniac control of each gesture and movement. […] It isn’t exhibitionism, on the contrary it is a radical embodiment (without the self-destruction that sometimes accompanies these kinds of performances) of one’s own gender identity.

Wlodek Goldkorn – L’Espresso – 22nd July 2015

MDLSX is an experience not to be missed; a show that quotes queer studies, gender literature, but that also goes well beyond all this. Silvia Calderoni and her androgynous body, which becomes hypnotic and post-human on stage, allows us to enter in a truly mythical dimension, while turning upside down our categories; as we leave, overwhelmed and grateful to MDSLX, we conceive what are the female and male dimensions in a way that can only be different, and together we remember that making politics can never happen without taking the responsibility of our own voice and the experience of our senses.
