Girl or boy? Neither. Both. Other. Searching for her own identity, Silvia Calderoni from Italy meditates on her appearance and looks to accept her unique body, free of society’s definitions. Alone on stage, she presents a hymn to the freedom of being one’s self, independent of gender, skin color, nationality or any limits imposed by others.Like its subject the show abolishes the categories between genres: video, installation, performance. In the form of a DJ/VJ set, autobiographic fragments, home movie excerpts, and literary references with a soundtrack that goes from Buddy Holly to Stromae via Smashing Pumpkins.
Silvia Calderoni runs through her own multiplicities to create a kaleidoscopic queer universe at the center of which she literally gets naked. A moving exploration of both borders and reality the better to blur them.
