Le Recueil des miracles

A performance by musician Louis Schild and choreographer Claire Dessimoz.

The tarantella: frenzied dance, spirited music, a secular ritual celebration to cure women of spider bites. A social trance to bring the community together outside of the purview of authority.

Louis Schild and Claire Dessimoz relate this southern Italian dance to punk, another transgressive and political genre of music and dance. They bring together a group of artists for a dynamic plunge into this particular form of expression, this legitimate or ‘demented’ release.
