LuminaTO  2007

at the Distillery District in the Pure Spirits Tent

ArtWorld Studio Productions is pleased to announce the World Premiere in LuminaTO 2007 of Tarantella, a cultural-anthropological drama with music, dance, song. Tarantella is an original play based on cultural and artistic aspects of Southern Italian life.  For LuminaTO, Tarantella will be presented in a concert version with song, dance, poetry and a live band.

Tarantella  is a celebration of life expressed through the southern Italian traditional music and dance of the Tarantella and Pizzica in its original integrity, researched and selected by director Marisa Buffone. The performance will feature upcoming director and vocalist Marisa Buffone, prominent singer and guitarist Dominic Mancuso, internationally renowned composer, violinist and accordionist Claudio Vena, acclaimed guitarist and mandolin player Silvio Simone, and showman percussionist Armando Borg. Tarantella will also feature original ballads written by Marisa Buffone and authentic costumes. Dramatic dialogue will be in English, Italian and local Southern Italian dialect.

The story is set in the South of Italy in the 1940s.  An eighteen-year old girl and a twenty- year old boy have shared a bond of love for two years. Every day Paolo climbs the mountain where Caterina lives with her wealthy and respected landowning family. Their love is as innocent and real as the feeling of hope that followed the liberation of Italy from the darkness of WW2. The excitement of the unknown and a sense of good things to come are in the air. But everything seems to be changing too quickly, and an unexpected series of events, choices and missed opportunities, change the young lovers’ lives forever.

The innovative aspects in Tarantella will facilitate and entice all audiences to participate in this interactive theatrical experience. The performance will transcend all language barriers and move towards the understanding and enjoyment of a true social-cultural experience. Tarantella runs at approximately 90 minutes.
