INTRA MUROS

music-theatre by Eric Sleichim / Peter Verhelst for two actors, counter-tenor, vocal quartet and string quartet

This music-theatre is based on a fascination for Pier Paolo Pasolini’s last film, the violent Salò, o le 120 giornate di Sodoma.

Intra Muros shows this controversial poet, film-maker and novelist while directing his last film and, just a few days before his death, holding forth passionately on politics, violence, power, utopia, arbitrariness, sex, life and death.
His mother listens carefully but slips unnoticeably into the role of the ex-prostitute in Salò.
Eight young musicians play the children of left-wing intellectuals who suffer the vengeance of fascism in the film. They have become one with their instruments to such an extent that they give voice to the insides of their bodies.
An angelic voice brings comfort, reviving memories of Pasolini’s brother, who died young, and of his lost lover Ninetto.

The issue Pasolini exposed so extremely in 1975 is still painfully topical: absolute and arbitrary power over the individual … in this film, Pasolini, who denounced the movement towards the right in Italy, wanted to hold up a merciless mirror to society.

In Intra Muros, Pasolini is perhaps not directing his last film, but his own death.
