The change needed is so profound that it is impossible to say. So deep that says it is unimaginable. But the impossible is to come. And the unthinkable is due… Paul B. Preciado, Feminism is not a humanism
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 colour, sexual organs, being other than an imposed or acquired nationality, a belonging to a Fatherland. Rosi Braidotti in “On Becoming Europeans” talked of “an open belonging to Multiplicities”, a text that suggests a post-nationalist identity… And MDLSX aims at going beyond categories – the artistic ones, too.
It is Silvia Calderoni’s “outrageous“ theatrical trip, who – after 10 years with Motus – experiments a D-jay/Vj Set like format, in order to start an exploration around borders that will be catalyzed in Black Drama. A Tragic Musical.
Autobiographical bits and literary evocations come together, and MDLSX, by blurring fiction and reality, swings from Gender Trouble to Undoing Gender. We quote Judith Butler who, with Donna Haraway’s A cyborg Manifesto, Paul B. Preciado’s Manifeste Contra-sexuel and other bits of the kaleidoscopic universe of Queer, weaves the background of this Monster-Performance.
