MDLSX

Magmatic territory where fiction and autobiography collide, MDLSX oscillates between Gender Trouble and Undoing Gender.

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.

MDLSX is an explosive sound device, a lysergic and solitary hymn to the freedom of becoming; to gender b(l)ending; to being other than the borders of the body, skin color, sexual organs; being other than an imposed or acquired nationality, a belonging to a Fatherland.

MDLSX tends towards the spilling out of all categories, even artistic ones. It is a “scandalous” theatrical trip that Silvia Calderoni carries out with a new format conceived as an eccentric DJ/VJ set. 

Motus, founded by Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò, has just celebrated its 25th anniversary. The group burst onto the scene in the 90s with productions wielding great physical and emotional impact that anticipate and portray the harshest contradictions of today. It has created theatre shows, performances, installations and videos, conducted seminars and workshops and taken part in interdisciplinary festivals. They’ve received numerous acknowledgements, including Best Performer Award, Dublin Fringe Festival 2017,three UBU Prizes and prestigious special awards for their work. Freethinkers, Motus has performed in Europe, from New York, Montreal, Santiago a Mil (Chile), Buenos Aires, Adelaide and Taiwan

What they're saying

"The same kind of restless energy you see in Iggy Pop performances."
- The Guardian

"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."
- The New York Times
