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.

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


Funded through an Arts Council Project Award. Development funded by Trinity Creative Challenge 2018. Supported by the Italian Cultural Institute and Mermaid Arts Centre.

Post-Show Talk, Saturday 5 October (Matinee)

'...a shocking, emotionally impactful, perhaps even traumatic, reminder of the nature of what we are talking about'
Irish Examiner

''Salò, or The 120 Days of Sodom' has been called nauseating, shocking, depraved, pornographic... It's also a masterpiece'
