April 11 – 14, 2018
DANCE. HYPNOTIC. MESMERIZING.
A stark white, round room, two revolving bars, two women dancing and spinning seamlessly around in a spellbinding and intimate testimony of how movement reveals not only each dancer’s individuality but the core of who they are.
Poetic, tender and all encompassing.
All 10+ performance
60 minutes in length, no intermission

… 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.
