16th and 17th century victims of venomous spider bites were offered no medicinal cure or relief. Instead the local musicians would work together to find the correct melody, known as a tarantella, which could cure them of their otherwise fatal symptoms. During this programme, Palisander explores a victim’s ordeal through the numerous symptoms and side effects of a tarantula’s bite.
Tickets also available at Nano Nagle Place, Douglas Street, or on the door subject to availability.
