MDLSX STARRING THE KINETIC SILVIA CALDERONI is an 80-minute performance/monologue/ DJ set performed by the award-winning actress Silvia Calderoni, and directed by Motus founders, Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolo. MDLSX weaves autobiography and literary evocations in a wild and fervent paean to the freedom of becoming, to gender-blending, to a being that cannot be contained within the borders of the body, skin color, sexual organs, or boundaries of national identity. For Motus, best known in New York for Alexis. A Greek Tragedy (Under the Radar/La MaMa) and Nella Tempesta (La MaMa Tempest 3 Series), there is no separation between art and civil engagement. In MDLSX , Silvia Calderoni blurs fiction and reality, as she swings from Judith Butlerʼ works, Gender Trouble and Undoing Gender, to Donna Haraway's, A Cyborg Manifesto, Paul B. Preciado's Manifeste Contra-sexuel and other bits of the kaleidoscopic universe of Queer. Silvia Calderoni’s outrageous theatrical trip defies categories, including the artistic ones, in a bravura performance that exists on the edges, visible and invisible, physical and emotional.
