EN / A re-enactment of the dizzily rhythmic italian ritual, Taranta, with cathartic noise and distortions.
The hysterical victims of a spider bite would dance until the poison gets out of their body. The performance brings a gender struggle up to the present: the issue of men domination over women bodies and mind, leading to mental illness and especially somatization disorder.
