A research above trance cultures starting from the "Tarantismo", without archaeological and necrophilic defects. An occasion to look at dance as a collective practice of care and protection. The work experiments repetition, cycle, shaking, trembling and vibration as instruments to push dancers and odiens towards a new edge, over the crisis of presence horizon corrupting individuals and communities.
The percussion music by Pino Basile often involved in Dance and Contemporary Circus projects (Roberto Olivan, Akram Khan, Ruspa Rocket) and five dancers coming from different countries and stories complete a syncretic exogamy. This exogamy remixes cultures, rural and urban places and generates a babel, sometimes exciting, sometimes confused and obscure. In this mix, new foments and old emerges.
The work opens an investigation on the contemporary body rituals, and on the need of dancing in relation with sites, communities and cultures that Menhir Dance Company will develop in the period 2016/18.
