The exhibition showcased paintings, drawings, sculptures, and installations related to the last six years’ research into the origins of Tarantella dance and music. The content of the exhibition ranges from factual to interpretive to poetic renderings of this vast subject. This exhibition was not only a stand alone event but a way to prepare the audience for the associated performance.


ODC Theater Gallery - September 11th – 25th 2006
Drawings by Nathaniel A. Bolton

made during the creation and rehearsal process of Artship Dance/Theater’s production “Tarantella, Tarantula” which premiered at ODC Theater this fall.

For the last year, Nathaniel A. Bolton has attended rehearsals weekly, documenting and interpreting the process of creation of all the elements of the production.
In this way he has built a body of work which bridges the inner world of his imagination with the outer world of ensemble building and choreographic process.
