Video Feature: Stuart Pimsler Dance and Theater Performance

10 February 2012

The Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater (SPDT) performed at Carleton on Friday, Jan. 6, kicking off the winter term programming in the Weitz Center for Creativity. Dan McAlister ’13 interviewed Stuart Pimsler, who also talked about the collaborative class he taught at Carleton during the winter term, which brought politics and dance together in a unique but interesting cross-disciplinary way. SPDT is a nationally recognized performance company that has been presented by The Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts, Dance Theater Workshop (NYC), Jacob’s Pillow, The American Dance Festival, and internationally in Canada, Europe, Israel, Taiwan and Russia. Founded in 1978 and based in Minneapolis, its work stands apart in the field of contemporary performance for its vast emotional range, intellectual provocations, and stunning visual environments. Dramatically powerful and insightfully witty, this company’s unique vision has been hailed as theater for the heart and mind. The performance was supported by funding from the Minnesota State Arts Board and the Legacy Amendment. For more information, visit their website at
