Dylan Tighe and the Abbey Theatre, Ireland

Pasolini's Salò Redubbed

by Dylan Tighe

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.

Suitable for ages 18+
Contains graphic scenes of a violent and sexual nature.

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