From Pirandello's kaos to the magical music of the Akragas

October 11, 2019 7 – 10:30 p.m.

This year as a part of Un Sogno Siciliano: Da Akragas al Kaos Pirandelliano (A Sicilian Deam: From Akragas to Pirandilliano Chaos) event series presented by 2019's Mancini Lecture and Centro Nazionale Studi Pirandelliani, we warmly welcome you to join us for traditional folk song, dance and musical instruments of Sicily. 

Internationally known, The "Akragas Folk Dance Group" was founded by a group of young people, keen on popular traditions, with the mandate of researching, spreading and staging, the folkloristic, historic and cultural traditions of the Sicilian people. The costumes worn by the group members represent a well defined historical period, which is the end of the nineteenth century. The musical instruments, the songs, the dances, and the stagings instead embrace a greater historical period which includes: the Greek, Roman, Turkish, Arabic, Spanish and Norman dominations of the Island, all of which have molded, throughout the centuries, Sicily.

$5 Admission, Free for students
*Refreshments will follow at Casa Italiana
