from a Wholebellies fan: tarantism (TAR-uhn-tiz-uhm) noun  : an uncontrollable urge to dance.  [After Taranto, a town in southern Italy where this phenomenon was experienced during the 15-17th centuries. It's not clear whether tarantism was the symptom of a spider's bite or its cure, or it may have been just a pretext to dodge a prohibition against dancing. The names of the dance tarantella and the spider tarantula are both derived from the same place.]

The Moscow Times praised playwright Nikolai Kolyada’s ability to write plays that “get inside the heads of common people and illuminate their hopes and despair.”
Nikolai Kolyada (playwright) has been hailed by critics and journalists as one of the most popular and influential contemporary playwrights in Russia.His resume boasts over 90 plays, many of which have been staged across the globe. His best known work, Murlin Murlo, was one of the longest-running shows in Moscow. He is the founder and artistic director of the Kolyada Theater, and editor-in-chief of the Ural literary journal.

Temporary Outdoor Driftwood Sculpture to be Created on Block Island

Monday, September 25th, 2006

Award-winning mixed media sculptor and installation artist Russ Smith will be on Block Island during the weekend of September 30 – October 1, 2006 to begin work on an outdoor driftwood sculptural installation made possible by a grant from the Rhode Island State Council on the Arts (“RISCA”). Smith plans to create a unique work using only driftwood obtained from the island’s beaches during the installation period. The temporary, site-specific work will be located on the grounds of the historic Narragansett Inn in New Harbor, a location chosen by the artist for its wide and open expanse of rolling lawn sloping down to the shores of Great Salt Pond. Smith creates unique, award-winning, mixed media three-dimensional works and installations. Inspired by the Greek and Italian artists who were part of the Arte Povera movement of the 1960′s and 70′s, Smith often uses found objects and items from everyday life in his art. Working with materials as diverse as rust, sand, barbed wire, wood, metal, water, and a variety of paints, Smith makes visceral art that is at times overtly political and in direct response to the present social climate in the United States and abroad, at other times deeply personal and enigmatic. His art in many instances drives itself during the creation process. The finished piece often surprises him. Smith’s work has been reviewed in Art New England and other publications, and he has received high praise from art critics, who have described his installations and assemblages as poignant, strong, sobering, and powerful, harrowing, timely, searing, and affecting. Smith’s art has been exhibited in galleries and museums throughout southern New England.For further information, please contact:
