Theatre: Pasolini’s Salò Redubbed at the Abbey Theatre (Irish Sign Language interpreted performance)

3 Oct 2019 (Past)

Abbey Theatre (Peacock Stage)

A live redubbing of Pier Paolo Pasolini’s controversial 1975 film Salò, or the 120 Days of Sodom.

Pasolini’s Salò Redubbed daringly transposes Pasolini’s notorious final film to Ireland.

This radical adaptation by Dylan Tighe explores the beliefs and values behind ‘coercive confinement’ and their enduring impact on the power relations and injustices of contemporary Ireland.

Pasolini’s Salò Redubbed is a fearless allegory of abuses of power, structural violence, masculinity and class supremacy.

Irish Sign Language interpreted performance: Thursday, 3rd October, 8:00pm

Please note: This performance contains graphic scenes of a violent and sexual nature.
