More Information on MDLSX – Transform 19


An explosive investigation of gender and identity, spilling across boundaries, and refusing to be contained.

MDLSX is a wild and solitary hymn to the freedom of becoming, to gender b(l)ending and to being more than the borders of our body, skin colour, sexual organs or nationality. Fiction and autobiography collide, weaving performer Silvia Calderoni’s life story with literary evocations. An electric monologue and DJ set.

Acclaimed Italian based collective Motus is inspired by everything from Greek mythology, to documentary theatre and historical events.

“An uncompromising, rock music-edged portrait… outstanding” – Time Out Sydney

Produced by Motus in collaboration with La Villette, Create to Connect, Mladi Levi, Santarcangelo Festival, L’arboreto – Teatro Dimora di Mondaino and Marche Teatro. Supported by MiBACT, Regione Emilia Romagna.
Presented as part of Transform 19, a festival of powerful international performance –  26 April – 4 May 19 –

British Sign Language Interpreted

A Signed performance is the usual full production with the addition of a British Sign Language Interpreter who stands on the stage interpreting the show for Deaf attendees.

Audio Described

Audio Described performances are designed to improve the experience of visually impaired and blind attendees. As well as listening to the dialogue on stage the customer can wear a headset and listen to a live description of the action on stage.

Relaxed Performance

A relaxed performance is a specially selected show from our programme, with slight adaptations to make it suitable for an audience of young people or adults with learning disabilities. This may include extra lighting, additional wheelchair spaces and the freedom to move to alternative seating if required.

Dementia-Friendly Performance

A relaxed performance with adaptations to technical aspects of the show, flexible seating options and a relaxed attitude to audience responses and movement in the auditorium. In our front of house space we will have a quiet room, clearer visual markers and signage, and additional staff and volunteers trained to sensitively and respectfully welcome people living with dementia and their supporters to this show.
