They're a brilliant Italian dance/theatre hybrid and over my years in Italy I've always looked forward to seeing them.
Many of the Motus shows I've seen over the years have been created by mixing classical texts with modern, cutting edge interpretations. This time around they've found the perfect vehicle for their approach with Jeffrey Eugenides’s novel Middlesex.
It's really like the role for the amazing Silvia Calderoni.
After seeing Motus' latest production MDLSX, I was left completely speechless. But in a good way. It's rare that a production leaves me feeling like my head has exploded, brimming with new ideas and the feeling of being completely in awe of seeing something amazing and fresh.
The New York Times raved about the production, but in this case I think the best possible take is that of my friend Dona in Rome.
Dona's a bit of a hybrid: she's a blogger, a DJ, a muso and my - and pretty much everyone I know's - go to when you want to be exposed to new artists, new music and something that will completely blow your mind. Her take on things is often surprising and varied.
Usually she posts in Italian on her OneWomanShow blog, but after having seen Motus' latest show, she's posted her thoughts on it, not only in Italian, but in English.
Go and check it out here, because I'm still trying to find the words to describe what I felt and saw.
