Italian troupe Compagnia Tarantarte - Nuova Danza Popolare will present the ritual dance performance Passo a Sud at Cairo's Falaki theatre on Tuesday 24 May.
Passo a Sud is an original creation of dance and music inspired by the Pizzica and Tarantismo Salento, directed and choreographed by Maristella Martella and accompanied by the musical troupe Officina Zoè.
The ritual dance performance incorporates moments of powerful emotional intensity.
The performance's organisers explain that Martella "creates, dreams and crosses past and present, classic and contemporary, popular elements of southern Italy with elements of the Mediterranean world," and "studies and welcomes in her horizon the Tarantismo and the mysterious magic of the trance."
Tickets are sold on the performance night starting from 6:30 PM at Falaki Theater.
Tuesday 24 May, 8pm
AUC Falaki Theater, Downtown AUC campus, Cairo
