History in the making! After sell-out runs in Rome, London, Edinburgh, Copenhagen, Sao Paulo, Madrid and Adelaide, Cristian Ceresoli’s La Merda, performed by legendary Italian performer Silvia Gallerano, opened at the Historic Theatre on May 2. Performed completely naked, Gallerano’s performance is powerful, desperate, vulnerable, and cutting. Don’t miss it; make sure you book your tickets soon!

See what local reviewers have to say about this provocative feminist work:

BOLDLY FEMINIST La Merda unleashes a stream of naked fury” – Kathleen Oliver, The Georgia Straight

“The character is NAKED in every sense. It’s brutal but absolutely RIVETING to watch” – Jo Ledingham, joledingham.ca

“[La Merda] is well worth queuing up for” – Lincoln Kaye, Vancouver Observer

“We in this Vancouver of complacency need to be KICKED IN THE BUTT. Last night Silvia Gallerano did a lot of that.” – Alex Waterhouse Hayward, alexwaterhousehayward.com

“She’s MESMERIZING” – Colin Thomas, colinthomas.com
