Cantata pays homage to Italian culture and to its musical tradition, popular in the most noble sense of the word. The piece is inspired by Italian music from the 18th and 19th centuries, from lullabies to the pizziche of Salento, and with a nod to Neapolitan serenades. This heritage comes to life on stage through the performance of four singers and musicians, accompanying the dancers to the sound of frame drums and the diatonic button accordion. They interpret traditional Neapolitan songs that immerse the public in the atmosphere of Southern Italy. The choreography brings the dancers in a hectic, masterful, compelling, and infinitely complex movement, just as passionate relationships can be. An explosive cocktail, just like Mount Vesuvius in the Neapolitan imaginary.
