SPOTTED: SPDT at Urban Growler
Tuesday, October 30, 6:30-9:00 pm
Stuart Pimsler Dance & Theater is hosting a “friend-raiser.” We want to meet YOU over drinks.
On the eve of all Hallow’s Eve, help us kick off our season! Meet and mingle with our talented performers, who will showcase excerpts of our works “At it Again” and “Terra Incognita.” We will also screen portions of recent dance-film projects, including the Midwest Emmy-nominated TPT documentary LISTEN/ Stories of Cancer and Resilience, which features our 2016 partnership with Gilda’s Club Twin Cities.
Come ready to support SPDT in our efforts to extend our community engagement locally and across Minnesota, while learning that dancers don’t bite (but if they do, you might turn into one!). Light appetizers provided, cash bar, silent auction.
Dancers don’t always wear tutus, but you’re welcome to arrive in one (costumes encouraged)!
