Carriageworks presents acclaimed Italian theatre company Motus’ electric work MDLSX

Carriageworks will present the Sydney premiere of Italian theatre company Motus’ MDLSX, a confronting, empowering hymn to androgyny. For three nights from 16 – 18 March, platinum-maned punk god/dess Silvia Calderoni will bring her unique brand of performance to audiences, using her family’s home videos to blur fiction with her own life story. Part performance-art monologue, part DJ set featuring music from The Smiths, Vampire Weekend and the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, this is a show that, like its subject, proudly defies classification.

MDLSX is an 80-minute performance weaving autobiography and literary evocations in a lively celebration of exploration, the freedom of becoming and gender-blending, presenting a being that cannot be contained within the borders of the body, skin colour, sexual organs, or boundaries of national identity.

Motus has a reputation of blurring boundaries of form and content in theatre, and their presentation of MDLSX is no different. Directed and conceived by Motus founders Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande and using music, video, monologue and physical performance, MDLSX tells the thought-provoking story of a gender fluid character, encouraging the audience to embrace difference and to question the way the world classifies and defines human beings.

MDLSX is performed by multi-award winning actress and artist Silvia Calderoni, who was born in Lugo, in the northern Ravenna region of Italy, in 1981. Calderoni began her acting career at an early age with Teatro Valdoca, and since 2006 has worked with directors Daniela Nicolò and Enrico Casagrande at Motus, specially creating performances that explore her androgyny. In January 2013, a jury composed of 70 experts and insiders awarded Calderoni the Marte Award “for being able to innovate while maintaining the characteristics and techniques of the traditional theatre on stage” for her performance in Alexis. A Greek Tragedy.

New York Theatre Review has described Calderoni’s performance in MDLXS as one of “fearless vulnerability” that “is required viewing for anyone interested in multimedia expression, gender identity, and boundary-destroying performance art.”

Carriageworks Director Lisa Havilah said: “Carriageworks is excited to be bringing this bold solo performance to Sydney audiences for the first time that has been described as exhilarating, high-intensity exploration of identity.”

This production contains nudity, strobe and laser lighting, recommended for ages 16 years and over.

KEY DATES & DETAILS:
Thursday 16 March – Saturday 18 March 2017 7.30pm
Ticket price $35

Eat, Sip, Love Champagne Afternoon Tea Set at COCO

If love is effervescent, then The Mira Hong Kong’s newest afternoon tea set comes just in time for the sweet month of romantic gestures. Available exclusively from 1 till 28 February 2017 at the hotel’s chic café patisserie COCO, the stylish proposition by Executive Pastry Chef Jean-Marc Gaucher ticks off all the boxes featuring some of the most popular champagne cocktails of all times reimagined into bubbly-licious desserts bursting with fruity flavors.

This Valentine’s Day and not only, couples – and pairs of foodies with everlasting love for all things sweet and bubbly – are teased with seductive desserts inspired with iconic Bellini, weekend brunch must-have Mimosa, and the French favorite Kir Royal, in their edible forms.

COCO’s Moët & Chandon Champagne Afternoon Tea Set features 4 sweets passionately crafted with ephemeral bubbles, including delicate Champagne Jelly with Cassis topped with gold leaf (Kir Royal), exotic Cointreau Mini Baba with Orange Supreme and a sip of champagne (Mimosa), a dome of Peach & Champagne Compote with Vanilla Mousse (Bellini), and the silky Grenadine Cream & Champagne topped with seasonal strawberry (American Rose). The sparkling flavor can also be found in one of the savories – the Smoked Salmon and Crab Meat Sushi served with Champagne Jelly.

Moët & Chandon Impérial Champagne is one of the world’s most popular blends featuring almost equal measures of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier. “It has a refreshing, pastry-scented fizz with a hint of vanilla, which makes it a good companion for sweets and savories, as well as gracious ingredient,” explains Chef Jean-Marc Gaucher. “Homemade preserves of floral Rose & Wild Strawberry Jam with Pink Cranberry Scone and luscious clotted cream pair exceptionally well with the bubbles.”

Winter tea selection including Rose with French Vanilla or a choice of signature coffees complete the experience while the afternoon tea is designed to be experienced with a flute of perfectly chilled champagne.

Served on a custom-made tea stand shaped after a hand bag, afternoon tea at COCO has a distinctively feminine touch reflecting the spirit of Hong Kong’s shopping mecca, Tsim Sha Tsui, where The Mira Hong Kong is a trendy haven from the city bustle.

Champagne Afternoon Tea Set is available daily from 3pm – 6pm at COCO (G/F Lobby); and on Saturdays at WHISK (5/F) restaurant overlooking green courtyard terrace Vibes.

We are working flat out with a whole raft of important new local partners in all the strategic countries in the region to get the right kind of visitor coming to Singapore next April”.
