float at the Carnival of the Cultures in Berlin
There has been a tarantella float at the Carnival of the Cultures
for the last four years. Every year the float has a different theme, which is
always based on ideas from the South Italian tradition. An enthusiastic Tarantella
group dances around the float, all dressed up to match the float's theme. The
dancers do not necessarily see themselves as performers, but they do try to carry
along the crowd. The further the procession travels, the more people gather around
the float, which ends up becoming a mobile Tarantella Party.
