Spider Dance


“This is theater at its best—raw, passionate, richly costumed and delightfully ragged—that has to be seen to fully appreciate the full-bodied wit and passion with which Ms. Belloni tells her tale. Folklore and classical Greek myth intertwine freely in Spider Dance.”

“The robust cast breaks into energetic tarantellas between colorful tales of clandestined lovers and Dionysus seducing lustfully frustrated peasant girls...She [Ms. Belloni] was supported by the terrific musical ensemble...Cynthia Enfield was a rich-voiced narrator. ...”

“This is a richly beautiful and exciting show that combines music, dance, copoeira, circus, acrobatics and mythical drama all swirled into a lively, colorful show, seasoned liberally with sex and sensuality.”

Spider Dance

Tarantella! Spider Dance: is Allessandra Belloni's masterwork, celebrating the phenomenon of the Tarantella-the dance of love and liberation-still thriving in Southern Italy and catching fire across the world today. Spider Dance is the Italian River Dance, a cross-cultural musical journey that takes us from its origins in ancient Greece to its deep roots in Italy. Starting with the birth of Spider Woman, the show follows the story throughout the centuries of this mystical celebration in honor of Dionysus, God of ecstasy and wine. The Pizzica Tarantata, the erotic trance dance ritual, survived every century's challenges - plague, war, Inquisition, poverty. Bitten by love or longing for it, the women known as Tarantate performed this frenzied collective ritual dance to free themselves. But first they had to surrender to the Tarantella's ancient 6/8 rhythm - alive in the tambourines, frame drums and in the love songs and work melodies that contained the healing.

THE PERPETUAL FOOTNOTE TO ALEXANDER THE GREAT'S MILITARY EXPLOITS - HIS LIFE-LONG LOVE AFFAIR WITH HEPHASTIAN AMYNTOR - NOW TAKES CENTER STAGE.

ALEXANDROS follows the Macedonian prince and his constant companion, Hephastian - with The ancient gods of love and war, Aphrodite and Ares, carefully guiding their destinies - from the time they meet as thirteen-year old students in Macedonia where they first fall in love, to his ascension to the throne, and with Hephastian at his side, to his conquering of the kown world.

Solidly based on historical fact and with ancient Greece, Egypt, Persia and India as its exotic backgrounds, ALEXANDROS pays tribute to one of the great love stories of history.

Celebrate Women's History Month with Internationally renowned Singer Percussionist and Cathedral Artist in Residence, Alessandra Belloni and her new Women Ensemble, Daughters of Cybele, Women Drummers for World Peace joined by guest actress/singer Cynthia Enfield and violinist Susan Aquila.

Countries around the world, including Southern Italy, Brazil, Africa and the Middle East have musical traditions based on the power of women. Belloni and Company will emulate one of the most ancient ways of praying and healing, including sacred chanting to the Black Madonna sung by female voices in harmony, accompanied by various percussion instruments (frame drums, tambourines, shakers, djembes, ballaphones, dumbecks, riqqs, mazhars, and marimbas.) Dancers will spin and stomp their feet in celebration of life and peace with the healing trance dance of the Tarantella.

With "Daughters of Cybele," Alessandra Belloni carries on the tradition of Roman priestesses who played the tambourine in worship of Dionysus, God of ecstasy and wine, and the Earth goddess Cybele.

"It was as if the crowd had been transported to a secret clearing somewhere in the Piemonte to witness some wonderfully obscure, mystical ritual."

In post-Communist Ukraine, a Jewish family struggles to emigrate to a new life. As they try to maneuver through the insane rules of a country in change, they realize that much of the struggle is within their own walls. Leon's Dictionary is a play about a universal desire, set in a world that few in the West are familiar with.

It is the third part of an 'opera verite' trilogy consisting of Falling Kansas and
