COMPAGNIA DI SCHERMA SALENTINA
La strada che si intende percorrere, ormai da tempo, è quella di far conoscere questa tipica usanza popolare, attraverso esibizioni teatrali, seminari, convegni, pubblicazioni e quantaltro, rendendo attori partecipanti, direttamente le pietre miliari di questa tipica cultura, per molti aspetti, arcana e misteriosa. Con l ausilio della scherma, si vuole raccontare la storia non scritta, spesso dimenticata e a volte scomoda; storie di vita di uomini semplici, a volte di grande intensità umana e cariche di quel carisma che è tipico di chi possiede quella sapienza naturale di chi vive a stretto contatto con la natura, piuttosto che in contrapposizione ad essa… Il tutto aspettando La Notte della Taranta 2009.
