The event is called Meridiana to pay homage to the imaginary line on the earth's surface reaching from the south pole to the north pole. Where we are, Australia, to the homeland of the dances we teach, learn and share: Italy.
Dance performances from the Melbourne School of tarantella's troupe.
Sanacori duo (Rosa and Renato) + guests. Poetic songs of love & resistance from Italy.
The Rustica Project. Modern Taranta-pop & traditional Italian folk music. Vibrant vocals & rhythms designed for dancing!
A dance ritual workshop for the community.
We'll also have an opportunity to look back, laugh (and cry?) at the journey of the last 10 years!
We respectfully acknowledge the five language groups of the Kulin Nation as sovereign custodians of the lands on which we work and live. We extend our respects to ancestors and elders past, present and emerging, and to all First Nations people. In the context of the work we do, we express gratitude for our shared connection through place, to the oldest continuing cultures on earth.
