Somatic Taranta
hybrids on rhythm, rapture and remorse. 



Somatic Taranta: hybrids on rhythm, rapture and remorse is a contemporary performative ritual combining dance, live music and song: a dance concert of revived breaths, vibrations and affects bringing contemporary dance in dialogue with the so called ‘pizzica tarantata’ dances and songs of the south italian tarantism traditions. Somatic Taranta is a sound and movement landscape of collective mournings, a rite of liberation, reviving a sense of resistance to a world that isolates, instead cultivating new forms of coexistence that allow suffocated breath and stagnations to transform into shared breathing, humming, sounding and rhythmic dancing.
