WOMEN WHO WERE LOVE TO DEATH -presented by UCL European Theatre Project


Sun 16 - Mon 17 Feb 2020 at 7pm (+ 3pm Sunday Matinee)



A multimedia performance that presents an ironic yet gripping portrayal of domestic violence. A creative narration of real people’s stories that explores an issue still largely undervalued.

Seventeen women from all over the world are brought back to life to tell of the relationships that led to their own death, through monologues based on the UK Première Ferite a Morte by Serena Dandini and Maura Misiti, translated by Alessandra de Martino, with one additional, original monologue by Margot Antignac.

A background of music and artistic projections accompanies a dance of love and death and amplifies the women’s voices emerging from the monologues.  A production by the School of European Languages, Culture and Society (SELCS) at UCL.

This is a passionate celebration of women who were loved to death but reclaim their lives on stage.

Supported by the Dean of Faculty, Stella Bruzzi, and the Director of the European School of Language, Culture, Society at UCL.

Special thank goes also to the British-Italian society for their trust in the project.
