The Burning of a Sicilian Whore

The Burning of a Sicilian Whore is written and performed by Giulia Menichelli.

She says “I enjoy playing with my physicality and I am open and bold in embracing new ideas in order to develop interesting and different characters: from the sensual and sophisticated Dorimene, in Le Bourgeois Gentilhomme, to the neurotic and strong headed Marion, in Road”.

This new show centres on her Italian roots with a look at abusive husbands, madman fathers, maniac brothers.

In seventeenth-century Sicily, they are a tricky problem for too many women. But… not for much longer as, when a resourceful courtesan takes matters into her own hands, that problem will soon be solved, in a world that will not help women… in any other way.
