CULTURE NIGHT 2022 @5PM - "Pizzica" workshop with Eliana Valentini - Workshop of folkdances from the South of Italy




"Pizzica" is a traditional Italian dance for couple from The South of Italy (Salento-Puglia region) but in recent times is very common the solo performance, especially on stage, during festivals and celebrations. It is an enjoyable and dynamic dance in couple, but it is also a powerful dance as solo performance, enriched by its myth and healing history as "spider dance".

Eliana Valentini (visual artist, dance teacher & performer) will guide you through the history and meaning of this dance, sharing her personal experience and passion. She will also teach you the basic steps and explain the rhythm and music structure.

The workshop is suitable for 16+, no previous dance experience is required.

IIC participates to Culture Night as part of the EUNIC cluster Dublin and adheres to the European Culture Trail initiative. For those visiting European Culture Trail events in person, you can take your “European Culture Trail Treasure Hunt” passport and collect stamps or signatures at each stop. Those passports with the most stamps at the end of the night will be entered into a raffle for the chance to win some wonderful prizes.
