The Stuart Pimsler Dance Theater (SPDT) of Minneapolis will be in residency on the St. Norbert College campus March 3-7. Their program, "Running North: The Green Bay Project," is funded in part by the National Endowment for the Arts and the Greater Green Bay Community Foundation. The program will include workshops from St. Norbert College, ArtGarage, Oneida Nation Arts Program and the Oneida Recreation Center. The residency will conclude with a performance by SPDT on March 7 at 7:30 p.m. in the Walter Theatre of Abbot Pennings Hall of Fine Arts on the St. Norbert College campus.

The performance will include the following works: "Tales From the Book of Longing," a signature piece of SPDT dance/theater that weaves its way through a world of frayed relationships teetering on the edge of change; "Ways to Behold," which celebrates ways of both holding and being held as shown through a series of personal and global inquiries; "Singing, Walking, and Other Habits," which focuses on the nature of distraction and happenstance; and "At It Again," a theatrical work conceived as a fan letter to the legendary American author Philip Roth. Pimsler's conversation with Roth uncovers and comments on their mutual joys, fears and passions relating to their common backgrounds and histories.

SPDT is an internationally recognized dance performance company, founded in 1978, that is co-directed by Suzanne Costello and Stuart Pimsler. In the U.S., SPDT's work has been presented at The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Theater Workshop, Jacob's Pillow and The American Dance Festival, among many others. Internationally, the company has performed and participated in programs in Canada, Germany, Israel, Taiwan, China, Russia, Bermuda and Mexico.

The company's outreach programs, Community Connections, have been cited as a "national model" by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts and the company's Arts & Healthcare programs have been recognized for best practices by the National Endowment for the Arts.

General admission tickets to the performance are $5. To purchase tickets, visit https://tickets.snc.edu/tickets/events.php or call the St. Norbert College Box Office at 920-403-3950.
