Drawing: Silvia Gallerano in La Merda at the Soho Theatre

silvia gallerano

Award winning Italian actress Silvia Gallerano is currently appearing in the uncompromising one woman play La Merda at the Soho Theatre in London. It’s about our modern consumer society and how we pull ourselves out of the mud.

Inspired by Pier Paolo Pasolini’s ideas on cultural genocide, Cristian Ceresoli’s play features a young, ‘ugly’ and naked Silvia Gallerano revealing her bulimic and revolting secrets to all. The Guardian said “a startling monologue on body language, fame and politics with mesmerising bravery by a naked Silvia Gallerano.

Winner of six major awards including the coveted Scotsman Fringe First Award and The Stage Award for Best Actress. It shocked and awed the 2012 Edinburgh Fringe audience followed by a sell out Fringe run and European Tour.

Reviews included:
“Hard to watch. hard to ignore”
“One of the most wonderfully full on performances, ever seen at the Edinburgh Festival”
“Raw, touching, intelligent and unforgettable”

Silvia signed this sketch at the Soho Theatre after Thursday evening’s performance. La Merda finishes Sunday 4 May 2014.
