Antonia SOSexit

November 2011


Antonia SOSexit


Work made in 4 weeks with 4 performers, 2 professional and two amateurs-younger, produced by Frascati theatre. A physical performance exploring the concept of hysteria and identity. A research on the physicality of screaming.


This work searches for which could it  be the iconography of a hysteric body.  Is hysteria visible in an individual? And what does it look like in a group? What is the power of the mass? Is possible to be a unique individual and still be part of a group?


How to question the unforgettable, the famous the hero, the Adonis, the mesias, the chosen. Who define our identity?  Antonia SOSexit is a contagious and energetic piece about dancing mania, humour, pain and extreme processes.
