RGBastler – Taranta

Performance AV [noise / CRT TV]
Mars 2019, 10 mn
Créated and performed with Andreea Vladut as RGBastler

A re-reading of the southern italian myth of the Tarantism and its hypnotic healing dance.

In this tradition from the 19e century, the saying goes that women
would get hysterical from the beat of the poisonous Tarantula. Only
an occult ritual with the dizzily rhythmic Taranta could exorcise
them. Yet, the reason of this hysteria can be clearly attributed
nowadays to men's domination over women's bodies and mind,leading 
to mental illness and especially, somatization disorder.
