Time Out says

4 out of 5 stars

Direction: Enrico Casagrande and Daniela Nicolò. Dramaturgy: Daniela Nicolò and Silvia Calderoni. Performance: Silvia Calderoni.

Silvia Calderoni, the sole performer in this show, has worked with Motus since 2005, appearing at the Grec with the company in both 2009 and 2012. Those who have already seen the works of this innovative troupe will be familiar with their stage codes, born of hybridisation and the fusion of different languages. This time, Motus takes texts from the literature of gender, essays and novels on queer themes (from Judith Butler to Paul B. Preciado), music and a host of audiovisual resources in a production where the barriers between the performer’s autobiographical material and fiction become hazy. It's an invitation to reflect on how we tend to exclude all those who do not fit into the standard categories that we have established. The show speaks of gender, but it also provides food for thought that can also be applied to other aspects of life.
