CULTURE NIGHT 2022 @7PM - "Tammurriata" workshop with Eliana Valentini - Workshop of folkdances from the South of Italy




"Tammurriata" is a dance from Naples and the area around Vesuvio and takes its name from the drum known as the “TAMMORRA”. This is a large round drum, in a wooden frame in which jagged metal strips are inserted and which vibrate and jangle when played.

The dance itself is still very 'earthy' and has a strong and vital connection to the 'soil', both psychically, in the nature of its dance steps, and emotionally, in the sense of its ties to the rural people and the land they worked.

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.
