/Buzz /Tarantella


Maybe you enjoyed this summer’s exhibition at the Stammbar?
This time Marijn Cela takes us into his world, the world of dance.

No, it’s not a tarantula nor is it a southern dish, but it is a folkloric dance from the south of Italy. Ever seen The Godfather? Then you might remember the tarantella during the wedding party scene with the typical rousing rhythm of the music, the quick steps and the spinning movements. The dance is also linked to tarantism, an ancient folk belief in which a possessed woman can be freed and reborn only through music and dance…. But the traditional dance is in danger: the youth is moving away from southern Italy – to the richer North or abroad, villages are deserted and the culture is in danger of being lost.

In this performance Marijn Celea goes back to his Italian roots. It is a quest in which he connects his personal body and movement language with the socio-cultural aspects of folklore from the south of Italy.
For Tarantella Marijn works together with several performers and is also guided by the setting in which the performance takes place: depending on the constraints arising from the context in which the piece is performed, the composition of the scenes and the group of performers changes. Thus the work, although based on tradition, also remains in constant evolution.
