Site-specific performance for the Archaeological Museum – Santa Maria Della Scala, Siena
Thirty minutes is the time it takes a praying mantis to mate with its partner and then eat its head. Thirty minutes will be the time you spend in the company of the Hysterics in the Santa Maria della Scala, whose site-specific performance will upset you between terror and larcity. Based on the medieval idea of the female uterus going crazy in search of the seed, The Hysterics is a wild ride through the Archaeological Museum. Fun, madness, loss and celebration will be conveyed by the actresses thanks to an extraordinary soundtrack of amazing, laughs and tears. An immersive performance that you will not forget quickly.
