THEATRE HAS A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE
THE PERFECT BODY is a brilliant and sometimes grotesque one woman show, which speaks to the neurosis of wanting to be healthy at all costs. Incorporating themes on the vicious cycle of industrial production of our food and societal obsessions over healthy eating, fitness, holistic lifestyle, and believing that old age should be feared, The Perfect Body has received incredible reviews and sold out audiences in Italy. Translated by Marco Quaglia, it will be performed by Savignoni in English for its Edinburgh run.
LA LOBA PRODUCTIONS in collaboration with Rhymes and Purple presented the show at EDINBURGH FESTIVAL FRINGE 2019.
Critically acclaimed production / première production of THE PERFECT BODY was at Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2019, playing PQA Venues @Riddle’s Court (venue 277) from 2-25 August 2019
After a stunning debut at XXV edition of I Solisti del Teatro Festival and a successful run in Italy during 2018-2019 theatre season, The Perfect Body came to Edinburgh.
Written and performed by Lavinia Savignoni
‘The Perfect Body is exhilarating, thought-provoking and well-meaning. Her dystopic monologue represents all the power and beauty of the Italian theatrical tradition.’
