Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater Performs at AC4TA on Nov. 14
Fergus Falls — Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater’s singular and elaborate work has garnered critical acclaim for its ability to situate highly physical, emotional vocabulary within stunning theatrical landscapes. In these imagistic worlds, SPDT creates poetic stories focused on love, loss, and the need for connection. SPDT’s gifted company of performers and collaborating designers continue to realize a signature vision of “theater for the heart and mind.”
The company will be performing at 7:30 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 14 at A Center for the Arts in downtown Fergus Falls. This is the second performance in AC4TA’s 2015-16 Center Series. Individual tickets are available for $22 adults and $6 students. Tickets can be purchased online at www.FergusArts.org, by phone at 218-736-5453, or at our box office at 124 W. Lincoln Ave., downtown Fergus Falls.
Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater was founded in 1978 by Stuart Pimsler, co-directed with Suzanne Costello since 1984, and has been a Twin Cities-based performance company for 15 years. An internationally recognized performance company, it has been presented throughout the U.S., Canada, Europe, Israel, Taiwan, Russia, Bermuda, China, and Mexico.
SPDT’s educational outreach includes teaching students in the areas of dance techniques, choreography, and history. During the week prior to its performance, the company will be working with area students.
More than just dance or theater, Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater’s community inclusive work, which engages a diverse array of groups (students, caregivers, audiences, and community members), has been lauded as a “National Model” by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts. Its Arts & Healthcare work has been recognized for “Best Practices” by the National Endowment for the Arts.
