Italy / Australian Premiere, Exclusive to Adelaide

Extraordinary, terrifying and hard to ignore
A naked Silvia Gallerano sings and howls this provocative and critically acclaimed text, presenting a deeply personal story as an unbroken current of thoughts rendered as sounds, movement and raw physicality. Her rage and bravery reveal revolting secrets, and a modern society that is powerful, desperate, vulnerable and cutting. A multi-award winning sell-out hit across Europe, La Merda is truly shocking and truly brilliant.
"Extraordinary, uncompromising and entirely unforgettable." -The Times ****
