‘The Transmitters’

One more amazing performance, which we viewed during Serena Korda’s artist talk, this piece focuses on animalistic imagery, rituals, and woman’s hysteria.

‘The choreography of this cult-like ritual is inspired by archival footage of fan-frenzied young women enraptured by Beatlemania. These scenes are spliced with terrifying images of the deadly Tarantula spider which alludes to the Italian folk phenomenon the Tarantism, historically performed as an antidote to the potentially fatal venom of a spider’s bites.’
