The Shit / La Merda: The Disgust Decalogue #1
A “young” and “ugly” and naked woman reveals her bulimic, revolting and public secrets as she struggles with obstinacy, resistance and apathy for her own celebrity breakthrough in the society of thighs and liberty.
An actress of untamed talent, Silvia Gallerano, creates a physical and vocal mask challenging a provocative, scandalous and beastly literary score written by Cristian Ceresoli where words might be sung, howled and shrieked but a chant never emerges. In her naked physicality she tells a personal story in a unbroken flow of thoughts/words rendered as sounds and movement. The deafening screams being choked. Appeased. Imploded. This female onstage offers herself up in a feast, ready to be torn apart by anyone. A poetic piece born of the flesh that returns to the flesh, captured in a tightly-sealed aesthetic. Applause required.
