Maristella Martella

Dancer and choreographer, she founded in Bologna in 2001 with Eugenio Bennato, one of the first tarantella schools in Italy. She goes beyond the traditional, the ritualistic and the academic. She mixes dream and reality, past and present, contemporary and classic to create a mix of popular elements of Southern Italy with elements of the Mediterranean world. She approaches tarantism and the mystery of the trance to communicate and transmit the strength and energy of the female element.
