Frida Kahlo Productions with Richard Jordan Productions, Produzioni Fuorivia

Extraordinary, terrifying and hard to ignore

The Guardian ****

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 ****

PRODUCED AND PRESENTED BY Frida Kahlo Productions, Richard Jordan Productions and Produzioni Fuorivia in association with Summerhall (Edinburgh), The Basement (Brighton), Soho Theatre (London) Foundation Teatro Valle Commons (Rome) and Gorki Theater (Berlin)
